Sex education saves lives.

That's the message advocates outside of the Council of Confederation tried to deliver to provincial and territorial leaders in Saskatoon on Wednesday.

Launched by Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, the #SexEdSavesLives campaign calls on all levels of government to take urgent action, as the group argues sex ed in Canada is "sub-standard, inconsistent, and poorly implemented."

Darrah Teitel, campaigns officer with the group, said they've sent letters to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and premiers across the country asking them to take action and invest in sexuality education, implementing guidelines recently released by the Sex Education and Information Council of Canada in classrooms across the country.
