Abstract: This organization represents some 250 senior citizens clubs in Newfoundland and Labrador. It publishes a newsletter, The Senior Voice, five times a year and makes regular presentations to the provincial government on behalf of the approximately 50 000 senior citizens of the province. A recent letter to the Minister of Social Services, reproduced in the September-October 1981 issue of The Senior Voice, criticized the government for increasing such regressive taxes as the one on gasoline and called for better social security benefits for seniors, such as a comprehensive free participation drug plan.
