“Live Long and Prosper”: Healthy Living in BC – The Next Generation

Do you think it might be easier to get healthy if there was a program at your work?

Do you think your kids would stop nagging you for sugary cereal or a dining experience at the superficially-happy-mega-burger-chain if there were no cartoon caricatures bouncing around on TV and the net?

Do you think you might go to the local recreation centre more often if it offered cool programs in an engaging facility instead of in a building that’s so tired it can’t get itself off the couch?

Well, we do too!

These are just a couple examples of the recommendations BCAHL has made in our latest policy paper, ‘Healthy Living in BC – The Next Generation’.

It includes a list of policies that members of the BCAHL have flagged as priorities in the coming year. These are a mix of education, regulation and taxation initiatives that can make a real difference in helping us all live healthier.

In the words of Jean-Luc Picard, “Make it so”.
