- Program Description
" A lot of teens drink. In fact 74% of Canadian teenagers use alcohol. I'm Neil Hope. In the Degrassi series I played the character Wheels. Both Wheels and I have had our lives changed by alcohol. Wheels lost his parents due to a drunk driving accident. I lost my real father to an alcoholic disease. "You'd think my decision to stay away from alcohol would be an easy one. It's not. Pressures to drink are everywhere. "We have travelled around the country to find out how Canadian teenagers are dealing with the issue - to drink or not to drink."
