I read one time that the leading cause of death of young adults in Quebec is suicide, and now I'm starting to wonder if it's related to to all the head lice checks and forced reading of depressing books!!!!
I grew up in Quebec, and gosh, yes, the books were depressing!
They did not do lice screenings when I was a child in Quebec, but Ontario currently does.
I think (my opinion) Canada is a bit more socialist and concerned with everyones welfare than the States. In many ways this is a good thing. However, it does tend to infiltrate into other areas, areas one might not want it to infiltrate to.
In the final analysis I am a social libertarian - the social part of me likes these type of things if implemented carefully and properly; the libertarian is like - get the government out of my business! I am one confused woman, lol.
