Premier Kathleen Wynne experienced an awareness raising moment on her northern tour and it happened Sunday in Elliot Lake. Mayor Dan Marchisella and deputy mayor Luc Cyr took part in a push-up exercise in front of Wynne and her consumer services minister. The goal is to do 22 push-ups a day for 22 days to bring awareness for troops who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
On average, 22 people a day are diagnosed with PTSD. Wynne and the minister counted the push-ups and both the mayor and deputy mayor completed the exercise at the same time. The event was posted on Facebook and is getting a lot of positive comments.
