Radon in Canada - Public Attention Influencing Policy

PRESENTED BY: Michaela Neetz, MPP student, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

November is Radon Action Month. Each year stakeholders across the country launch a campaign encouraging radon testing and mitigation in an effort to address the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. Campaigns such as this work against the dynamics of public attention as described by the issue-attention cycle and have potential agenda setting implications. This presentation will explore radon policy in Canada paying close attention to the influence of public and media attention and discussing challenges such as risk perceptions and competition for attention.
