Per the list provided by User:Allen3 here, I stopped by to check for compliance with Wikipedia's sourcing guidelines for medical text. I don't see anything in the proposed hooks that engages MEDRS; I will leave source verification, copyvio checking, etc to other DYK reviewers. There are (just a few) health claims in the "Results" section that are sourced to the popular press, rather than medical sources compliant with WP:MEDRS. I do not have access to Laiken, but if it is referring to Tomkinson & Olds 2007, that does seem to be a secondary source, although neither do I have access to it. To reflect a lay press summary of a medical secondary review source, see the use of the laypress parameter in the Template:Cite journal. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:58, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I found a copy of the Laiken article on Google News' archive (I had to search the newspaper's archive, as Google could not find the article's title). It cites Roger Gauthier, a professor at the University of Ottawa at the time of the study, and chairman of the CAHPER measurement committee that conducted the study in 1979 and 1980. I haven't been able to find the study itself online though (including the website of Physical and Health Education Canada, the current incarnation of CAHPER), and have no access to journals online. If I can find it, I will convert the citation from {{cite news}} to {{cite journal}} with the laysummary information. Mindmatrix 22:51, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
It would be optimal if you are able to do that, but I have no concerns about the suitability of the content as is for the mainpage (Laiken seems to be a summary of a valid secondary source, albeit one hard to find). SandyGeorgia (Talk) 13:36, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Needs a full review covering the standard DYK criteria. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:59, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Newly created article at the time of nomination. Close to 9kb prose. Ref 22 supports the main hook (presuming that "Canada Fitness Test" is simply an equivalent term to "Canada Fitness Award Program"), which is in the article. AGF on ALT2, ALT3, ALT5, and ALT7 due to offline sources. Two paragraphs (one sentence apiece) are uncited, and every paragraph should have at least one. ALT4 is one of those impacted by being unsourced. – Muboshgu (talk) 19:27, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
The program consisted of the standards, the test, and the awards. (The program was the organizational system by which the test was administered and the awards distributed.) Regarding ALT4, the program is specifically mentioned in the lyrics, a snippet of which is in the text (particularly, Next to your comrades in the national fitness program, in which "Canada" is replaced with "national"). I'll see if I can find a ref for it; I've added three refs and a clarification for the other unsourced statement. Mindmatrix 20:42, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
I've added a ref for the claim about the song. It is this blog posting at PLOS written by Meghann Lloyd (an assistant professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology), which I assume satisfies the requirement specified at WP:UGC (second paragraph) for blog references.

  • Symbol voting keep.svg Sorry for the delay. I was gone for Thanksgiving and forgot to mention that. I respect PLOS and have no problem with their blog. I think the other refs added are helpful as well. – Muboshgu (talk) 19:16, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
