Latest Report--Progress for Ontario's children and youth? Researcher speaks to the state of Ontario's children

How are Ontario's children and youth faring when it comes to their
economic security, physical safety, health, education, and a number of
other indicators concerning their family life? In an interview with
Louise Hanvey, lead researcher for the just released seventh edition of
Progress of Canada's Children and Youth 2006, Voices for Children found
some surprising facts and trends. Did you know that Ontario has the
largest number of Aboriginal children in Canada and yet they make up
only two per cent of the youth population? More importantly, what does
this mean for those children, their families and the communities they
live in?  To read the full report -  "Progress for Ontario's
