Canada’s 2013 Active healthy kids report card is released
The 2013 edition is out, and nicely reformatted and packed rich with information.
The report card is tracking year over year progress on 17 indicators of physical activity for children. Not surprising, in many areas Canada is not performing well, but in some areas there are good grades.

Another step in the right direction to getting Canada back on the pathway to physical fitness.
