Stick it to fast food
Student leaders in Ontario say it's time their peers took a stand against the food they're served in cafeterias and the fast food joints that often ring schools.
They're calling on students to boycott fast food during November, in a campaign called ``Stick it to fast food.''
The campaign is rolling out under a provocative banner, a logo that looks both like a fork with a single standing tine and a hand with the middle finger raised.
It's being spearheaded by the Ontario Student Trustees Association, which represents students who sit on school boards across the province.
Association president Hirad Zafari says students hear all the time that obesity rates are up and students aren't eating well enough, but no one is making any changes.
Zafari admits it will be hard to get everyone on board, but he says a lot of students do want to make better food choices.
