Alarming..........That's the reaction of the new Minister of Wellness, Trevor Holder on the Health Council's report which concluded we are the fattest province with 30 per cent of the population overweight combined with one of the lowest rates of being physically active.

Holder vows the new provincial government is bound and determined to tackle this issue because in order for health care costs to go down the emphasis will have to be on preventing people from getting sick in the first place.
 He also warns unless the situation is turned around the younger generation could wind up dying sooner than their elders.
