Active Living Alliance For Canadians with A Disability--Position Statement

From the website: "The Federal Government (Health Canada) is initiating a process that will result in a national Healthy Living Strategy and the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability is determined to ensure disability issues are taken into consideration. This process was initiated in response to concerns about the overwhelming epidemic of overweight, unfit Canadians. The strategy will concentrate on active living and nutrition and their correlation to healthy body weights. The goal of the Healthy Living Strategy is to encourage and support positive health choices. The Active Living Alliance is committed to influencing the Healthy Living Strategy from the start.
