Government Seeks to Fast-Track Tanning Bed Legislation in September

August 22, 2013

Joint Statement by Hon. John Milloy, Government House Leader, and Hon. Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.

“In March our government moved to prevent skin cancer among young Ontarians by introducing Bill 30, legislation to ban youth access to tanning beds.

After blocking the legislation for months, we are pleased to read in a published media report that the opposition are finally committed to fast-tracking this important bill.

When the House returns next month, our government will move a programming motion and, if necessary, a time allocation motion, in order to quickly pass this life-saving bill into law by the end of September.

The opposition blocked progress on Bill 30 last spring by needlessly extending debate on three other bills for more than 55 hours – far more than required.  By running out the clock debating the Local Food Act, the Air Ambulance Amendment Act, and Co-op Housing legislation, the opposition prevented this important tanning bed legislation from moving forward.

We have a responsibility to the people of Ontario to make the Legislature work and to help young people in their everyday lives.”

Hello Everybody!
 
Some of you have been asking for summer programs for students. (It would give them something to do and keep them out of trouble. lol.)
 
Let’s face it, there are a lot of students that are pretty out of shape. I see them walking on the street in front of the club all the time.
 
So I’m offering a membership from now until Labour Day for $149. That will include the No BS Group Training too so we won’t be able to take too many.
 
If you or your friends have someone that would like to come let us know right away. Yonge St call 416-969-9912, Richmond 416-603-0004. Let us send the girls back to school in the fall looking good!
 
Best of health,
Christine!

Festival Director Quotes:

“BITE ME! Film & Arts Fest explores issues of body image, media (re) presentation, identity, survival and our advocacy as active media citizens and social beings through creative mediums.” –Jill Andrew, Ph.D.(c.), Festival Director

“BITE ME! Film & Arts Fest wants to expand the definition of body image…it’s not just about weight or thinness. We are unpacking how issues of the race of sexual and gender identity, of age, of the health of disability…how all of our social identities wrap themselves into our bodies and how we and others perceive it.” –Jill Andrew, Ph.D.(c.), Festival Director.

“I named the festival “BITE ME!” not because I want folks to run around biting each other(other than the kinky folk who get consent to nibble of course!) BITE ME! is a way of talking back to the media, to stereotypical, rigid and stifling gender stereotypes, to social ideals of ‘perfection’ to colourism/shadeism….to homophobia… to fat hatred…to ableism…to all those labels that try to define us external to who we truly are. BITE ME! essentially says ‘F you’ to all of that and more and inspires us to be fabulous and fierce on our own terms.”–Jill Andrew, Ph.D.(c.), Festival Director

Jill’s favourite quote…most applicable to this festival: “If you don’t define yourself for yourself you’ll be crunched into other people’s fantasies for you and eaten alive.”– the late Audre Lorde, Black Queer Lesbian Poet, Essayist, Feminist and Civil Rights Activist

Christine's Fitness - January 12, 2010

Hello Everybody!

At the end of every year the accountants
tell me that I’ve got to either raise the membership
dues to existing members, or get more new
members.

What other clubs are doing is offering corporate
rates and getting a lot of members that way.
We have never done this.

If you like the club and feel you could recommend
Christine’s, you could help me by telling me
who to contact at your place of work to talk to
them about a corporate membership for your
company.

In return for doing the “legwork,” I will give you a
free figure consultation, and tell you what exercises
are best for your body type and present condition.

Thanks
Christine !

Contact Christine at christinesfitenss@bellnet.ca. For more information about the club: http://www.christinesfitness.com/.
