(Alexandria, Ont.) A traveling exhibit on Medicares past, present and future will be in Alexandria for a day (Monday, October 30) before criss-crossing the province for the duration of the federal election campaign.

The gallery-style exhibit, called At the Crossroads: Medicare yesterday, today and tomorrow looks at life before Medicare. Produced by the Canadian Union of Public Employees, it highlights a workable plan to reform and expand public health care.

At the Crossroads draws on archival photos and research, starting with the Great Depression in the 1930s.

CUPE, Canadas largest union, represents 485,000 women and men, including 150,000 health care workers.

(EDITORS: In Alexandria, the exhibit will be on display at the Alexandria-Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Monday October 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
