Dear Premier:

The ongoing investigation on the wholesale fleecing of seniors through what amounts to terror tactics in the town of St. Paul Alberta is only an icon of what is transpiring throughout this province!

The terrible abuse of seniors by a person or persons in a leading financial institution is bad enough. When the financial institution goes in concert with the leading elderly care facility in that town is absolutely deplorable!

At the heart of this is moving the seniors in question to sign off title to their properties under the false threat of them loosing pension funds or, similar scams. In some cases the seniors are offered an outright cash sale which is 75% below market or coerced into thinking the maintenance of their property is out of the scope of their capability.

When will you come forward with the Seniors Advocate position long lobbied for by seniors? Have you the shred of decency it takes to put in heavily punitive legislation that will stipulate rules of conduct and protect the seniors which you seem to abandon at every opportunity? When it comes to senior abuse in Alberta institutions you live in a constant state of denial. To do otherwise would be bad for your friends business. This makes you complicit in the abuse!

I see you are up to building free highways for the oil companies now. Why not cut a little slack and bring a proper advocate aboard?
