Canadian Public Health Association

Stop Marketing to Kids Open Letter to Senators

14 June 2019
Honourable Senators
The Senate of Canada
Ottawa, Ontario
Dear Senator:
We the undersigned 425 health and public health professionals, researchers, policy-makers, academics, students and trainees implore you to stand up for Canada’s children and take the necessary steps so that Bill S-228 (an act to restrict the marketing of foods to children) is placed on the Senate’s priority list and voted on before the Senate adjourns on 28 June 2019.
We understand that considerable pressure is being put on you by various industries to delay the passage of Bill S-228 so that it may die on the order paper when an election is called this Autumn. Please do not allow corporate profits to outweigh the health and well-being of our children and grandchildren.
We beg you and your colleagues to support this important piece of legislation that was thoroughly studied in the Senate over the past two years and passed by the House of Commons in September 2018.
Bill S-228 is based on evidence and is a critical component of a multi-pronged strategy to protect
children’s health.
Diets high in sugar, fat and salt are now the leading risk factor for death in Canada with costs exceeding $26 billion per year. Self-regulation mechanisms by industry are insufficient and the evidence is clear that children are being targeted at an alarming rate with advertising for foods and beverages high in sugar, fat and salt.
Bill S-228 legislation is an unprecedented opportunity for you to have a positive impact on the health of children and on the economy by turning the tide of chronic diseases and preventing costs by the health systems associated with these illnesses.
We believe in a Canada where children’s health takes precedence over corporate profit.
The time to pass Bill S-228 is now.
