It feels like we have just entered into some sort of Bizarro world my friends.
We all know that politicians will say anything to get elected.
- They’ll promise lower taxes
- They’ll promise increased services
- They’ll sell over their first-born child if it will get them into office.
Because of this, you can imagine my surprise when I read that the wanna-be Premier of Ontario, Mr. Tim Hudak, is promising that “Ontario school kids would get 45 minutes of mandatory physical activity in school in addition to phys ed classes as part of a Progressive Conservative prescription for a healthier province“.
Which is weird considering that for years and years, school boards and politicians have been removing physical activity from schools as a non-essential part of the school day.
As if our overweight, diabetic, ADHD suffering kids couldn’t use a little extra bit of exercise.
Is common sense coming back to politics???
