A quote from Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, leader of the PQ
The PQ leader recognizes that the Legault government began to tackle the problem by adopting a strategy on the use of screens and the health of young people during the previous legislature. But I think we need to move faster than that, he said in his video shared on social networks on Sunday.
According to him, the fight that must be waged today is as legitimate as that devoted to tobacco in recent decades. Not so long ago, our young people smoked cigarettes in the schoolyard, he recalls. Then at one point, we made the link with cancer, then we released that.
The problem of young people's overexposure to screens, that said, it's not just Quebecois. In France, President Macron devoted long minutes to it in his press conference on January 16, announcing that he wanted to take new measures to regain control of our screens and their use by children.
