Pat works closely with our seniors to ensure that they have affordable and accessible services to meet their needs.
Pat recently initiated a review for a dedicated seniors’ centre in northwest Mississauga and will work to make it happen.
During the last election campaign, Pat surveyed many seniors about lower bus fares. She fulfilled her promise and made this happen by bringing in a $1 fare during off peak hours. She also initiated a full review of lower fares for all lower income riders and this program is now in place and running in Peel.
She initiated a review of the grass cutting grant program resulting in an increase in the funding as well as expanding the program to cover all yard maintenance. Her support at Region Council for free dental for seniors in need has helped thousands of people.
Pat works closely with the local seniors’ clubs as well as the Mississauga Seniors Council. As the largest growing segment of our population, Pat knows that we need to ensure that our older citizens are involved and healthy and active.
