Ontario’s Premier says he’s making cancer prevention among our children a priority issue.  Dalton McGuinty said this morning, his government will support a plan by NDP MPP France Gelinas to ban tanning bed use in Ontario for children under 18.  He said, “I phoned France yesterday.  I commended her for her initiative and told her that Deb Matthews had a broader more comprehensive bill.  But let’s go with your bill.  I think it’s ready to go.  There are some changes that we’re going to work out at committee.  I think there’s a strong concensus in the scientific community (that tanning bed use increases cancer risk).”  Dalton McGuinty made his comments after touring the Odette Cancer Centre at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital.
