Yes, it's great to hear that. Part of the impetus for my bringing the motion to the floor was to make the connection between mental health and physical activity, and I think that program has highlighted that brilliantly. Keep up the good work with that. It's great to hear that those success stories are happening, so thank you for that.
The Canadian School Boards Association and Physical and Health Education Canada will intertwine on these questions.
It's clear that without a robust school program as one of the systems to ensure physical activity in youth, we're not going to get anywhere country-wide.
I'm not alarmed, because I was already aware of the numbers, but it's a bit disheartening to hear about the percentage of children who are getting the recommended 60 minutes a day.
I know that in Ontario, which is where I happen to be from, there are schools that don't teach phys. ed. every day, for sure. I think that's almost the norm rather than the exception, especially for the younger ones, as far as I am aware.
I'm wondering whether Physical and Health Education Canada has a position on what the appropriate implementation should be in the schools. Does the Canadian School Boards Association have a similar position? If it's different, what is the difference? What would be the recommendation for daily activity?
