I was most impressed just recently on the news when NDP Leader Alison Coffin spoke of the need for dental care for seniors because it was actually the first time in an election race I heard this issue brought to the forefront. So, just on that small note she spoke of, I am sure — as with me — it caught the attention of many seniors.

Newfoundland and Labrador has a population of mainly seniors in dire need of dental monetary assistance. Such a small topic in the realm of much larger problems this province is facing, but it means so much to the people who vote.
