IT SAYS, I SAY, AND SO...
"Of more than 500 First Nations schools, only half have a gym", and "55 per cent of First Nations children living on reserves, and 41 per cent off reserves, are overweight or obese"
Don't these numbers show you something!? Does this not add up or something!? You may think 'maybe that's just the percent of all children'... But no! "Overweight children, from 12 per cent to 18 per cent, and obese children, from three per cent to eight per cent". You see? In total there is a lot less obese and overweight children. The lack in health is unique to the same people who don't have gyms. Something should be done about this!
The government should be on this! Fund these schools! No matter how it's done, these schools need more money. This should be a top priority. This isn't a cracking road, or condos that need to be built... This is peoples' lives! By not supporting these schools, they are personally responsible for many shorter lifespans. The awareness should be spread!
