Video B-Roll Available Via CNW - Heart And Stroke Foundation 2009 Report on Canadians' Health



    TORONTO, Feb. 6 /CNW/ - The following video is available by satellite or
by CNW's Broadcast On-Demand web download:

    STORY SUMMARY:

    On Monday, February 9, 2009 the Heart and Stroke Foundation will unveil
its annual Report on Canadians' Health. In this year's report, the Foundation
reveals the startling discrepancies between the cost and accessibility of
basic healthy food within provinces and across the country. The Foundation's
first-ever nation-wide (66 communities) shopping survey found Canadians are
often paying more than double to almost six times the price for the same basic
healthy food and it's not always where you think. Access to healthy food
should be a right, not a privilege; a problem which may only get worse given
the current downturn in the economy.

    
    Featuring:

    Dr. Marco di Buono
    Director, Research, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario

    Stephen Samis
    Director of health policy, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada

    Journalists may join the Toronto press conference by dialing
1-800-732-9307 and asking for the Heart and Stroke Foundation press
conference.
