New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant says there's room to move on his government's nursing home policy if other ways of addressing finances can be found. Gallant met with seniors groups on Friday. Seniors are upset with a policy that would see the government use the assets of wealthier seniors to help pay for their nursing home care. Cecile Cassista of the New Brunswick Senior's Coalition says the government seems open to looking at options. (Gallant says the policy has not been put in place yet, and he has asked the seniors groups to help find ways to address the province's financial situation.)
