Canada is among the leaders in our relatively sophisticated policies, places and programs, with a B+ in Community and the Built Environment, a C+ in School and a C+ in Organized Sport Participation:

PEMBROKE - Renfrew County will move ahead with developing an active transportation corporate policy.
During their budget workshop Wednesday in Pembroke, county councillors voted unanimously to spend $189,274, representing 35 per cent of the current value assessment, on active transportation once staff have come back with a policy framework in March.
Admaston/Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe, chair of the finance and administration committee, readily admitted residents continue to smoke, drink and eat too much, but active transportation will lead to healthier communities.
