It may come as a surprise, but it seems that Canadian teenagers are behaving better than their parents did when they were teens. Today's Canadian teenagers are almost angelic: they drink less, smoke less, take fewer drugs and have less sex. That's according to the results of a series of surveys called Project Teen Canada. Every eight years since 1984, project surveys were conducted to examine the values, attitudes and beliefs of young Canadians. Marc Montgomery talks about the Project Teen Canada to Reginald Bibby, a sociologist at the University of Lethbridge and the author of a forthcoming book based on the survey results called "The Emerging Millenials."
