Won't Some Canadians Think of the Children?

Yes, actually. Canadian researchers have been looking into ways to reduce risky behaviors in teenagers. "Risky behaviors" defined as all the fun things in life that are wholly inappropriate for anyone under age 18.

The catch is that for safer teenagers, you have to make everyone more affluent and make them believe that they live in a safe, trusting, and helpful place. As if that's going to happen anytime soon. So it looks like no matter how many strict rules we lay down for them, they'll still be smoking, drinking, and screwing.
