    WHY:    To raise funds and public awareness for the issues of caregiver
            support. More than 3 million Canadians provide informal home care
            to a loved one, yet only one in four receive any type of
            publicly-funded home care assistance. Furthermore, 25 per cent of
            employed persons provide home care to a relative or friend
            (between 26 and 80 hours per month) and 46 per cent provide some
            level of eldercare (Statistics Canada, 2002).

       Your photographers and reporters are invited to attend. Please
