KC, Ryan...interesting comments. However, I would think that family income levels would play a very significant role affecting participation in sporting activities, and thus obesity. Given that 1 in 4 children under the age of 12 in Hamilton live in poverty (SPRC 2004 Report), coming up with the $35/month/child to engage in a dance class, or $135/child to register for houseleague soccer is just not possible.
