Messages of congratulations
from our elected officials for our 20th anniversary issue (October 2006)

Congratulations to The Senior Times on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. As the Member of Parliament NDG-Lachine I join my constituents (seniors and aspiring seniors alike) in celebrating 20 years of informative, entertaining and thoughtful writing. From month to month The Senior Times maintains a delightful presence in our community. It has become a friend who serves to remind us gently each month how fortunate we are to have been given the gift of life, and how it is never too late to enjoy and protect it. Long live The Senior Times!
— Marlene Jennings, M.P. NDG - Lachine

I am delighted to extend my best wishes to The Senior Times on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. It is a well-known fact that we live longer than we used to. Accordingly, a paper such as The Senior Times fills a real need in addressing the issues of concern of a growing segment of the population. Having recently officially become a “senior” myself, I appreciate The Senior Times, as well as its Resource Directory, which contains useful and handy information on a variety of subjects.
All my congratulations to the team, and many happy returns to The Senior Times.

— Irwin Cotler, P.C., O.C., M.P., Mount Royal

I congratulate the editors, writers, and staff of The Senior Times on their 20 years of informing, engaging, and entertaining our community’s seniors. The Senior Times is an inspiring source of journalistic integrity and community advocacy. I have always admired your proactive approach to promoting healthy retirement living, and how, each and every month, you publish stories that truly matter to West Island seniors. Congratulations on all your success. I wish you the very best in the future.
— Francis Scarpaleggia, M.P./Depute, Lac-Saint-Louis

I am delighted to convey my warmest greetings to The Senior Times team on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. My best wishes for continued success!
— Lucienne Robillard, M.P., Westmount-Ville-Marie

MNA Salutes Seniors
I am pleased to convey my best wishes for your 20th anniversary. A newspaper is like a living organism. It develops constantly in lively response to the changing social, political and commercial environment. Yet, it cannot survive if it abandons its fundamental beliefs and values.
The anniversary you celebrate today represents the acknowledgment of a long, vibrant and eventful life. It is more than just a celebration of the success of a business venture. It is an occasion to reflect on the essence of the newspaper — the qualities that have enabled it to grow as an institution and serve the community and the seniors for so long.
I take this opportunity to salute all our seniors on the occasion of International Seniors Day on October 1st for their important role in society and their multi-dimensional effort to build future generations. The Senior Times changes but has been constant in its commitment to provide reliable news and information to the community for the past 20 years. Happy 20th anniversary!

— Raymond Bachand
MNA for Outremont
Minister of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade

A message from Stéphane Dion
The Senior Times has become an institution in the lives of many Montrealers of all ages.
Despite its name, The Senior Times is a reliable source of information on current events for all.
I want to take this opportunity to wish the entire staff a wonderful 20th ­anniversary and continued success for many years to come.

— Stéphane Dion
M.P. for Saint-Laurent/Cartierville
