On December 18, 2006, the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA)
launched drinkingfacts.ca (http://www.drinkingfacts.ca/). The website
launch coincided with the holiday season when many young people across
the country would consume alcohol as part of their social activities.
Drinkingfacts.ca is based on extensive research and conversations with
