Children make up a quarter of the population but can’t cast a vote. As members of the public, Canadians have immense power to urge those seeking office to take action to improve the lives of children and invest today for the sake of all Canadians. Candidates are urged to share their plans, ideas and points of view around these issues. As Canadians prepare to head to the polls, now is the time to demand that these challenges be tackled.
Raising Canada: Election 2019, released by Children First Canada and the O’Brien Institute for Public Health, calls for urgent action by federal leaders to address the top 10 threats to childhood in Canada. Key issues include poverty, abuse, obesity, suicide, bullying, and preventable injuries. According to the research, of the 8 million children in Canada, at least one third do not enjoy a safe and healthy childhood.
The solutions are readily available and can be achieved for comparatively little cost. The cost of inaction is far greater. What is needed now is the political will to make sure every child in Canada can experience the childhood they deserve.
