Overview

More than half of the COVID-19 cases in Canada are linked to seniors’ homes. Is this fallout a reflection of a disregard for older people in Canadian society? Which safeguards should have been in place to prevent such a failing, and what can we do to protect our seniors in the future? In what ways should Canadian law adapt to better shield seniors and vulnerable people from becoming casualties amidst health and legal crises?
