A replica of the historical Trojan horse will begin touring Ontario this week to warn of the dangers of health care privatization.
The 15-foot Trojan horse will be visiting communities, summer fairs and festivals and health care facilities. The tour is travelling west to east, with the first stop in Kenora on Wednesday, July 18.
WHAT: Trojan horse warning of privatization’s threat to public health care
WHERE: Farmers Market, Harbourfront, Kenora
WHEN: Wednesday, July 18, 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
