Bill VanGorder is chief operations officer of CARP, the Canadian Association of Retired Persons.

VanGorder 'retired' as CEO of The Lung Association of Nova Scotia almost 15 years ago, but has continued to be an advocate for seniors’ issues and a speaker on retirement planning.

That’s a basic gap and recipe for a lack of prevention and care for problems when they could be most simply dealt with, and at the least cost. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
