Louise Jackson, fighter for seniors

Louise Jackson

Louise Jackson died today after a short illness.

She was a great trailblazer and in her “second career” as an MP a fierce advocate for senior citizens. Even when she left parliament she continued to push for reform and change for seniors and in health care.

If she occasionally got the details wrong, she was always on the right side of the argument – the side that said treating patients and seniors with dignity was where you started from.

Nor could she be intimidated, although plenty of people tried. She kept working until she got to the bottom of a problem.

Jonny Starling has some personal memories on Catch a Fire.

The Royal Gazette has extensive coverage here.
