Seniors are always a hot topic during election time in Parry Sound-Muskoka.

Green Party candidate Glen Hodgson says his party is the first to develop a platform for seniors’ issues and committed to a national strategy.

Hodgson says the strategy also includes helping seniors age in place.

Hodgson is running against incumbent Conservative Tony Clement, Liberal Trisha Cowie, NDP Matt McCarthy, Canada Action Gordie Merton, Marxist-Leninist Albert Gray Smith, and Pirate Party Duncan Bell.

Election Day is October 19th with advanced polls open today and throughout the Thanksgiving weekend.
