Government Action
The Canadian federal government announced several years ago that media violence was a priority, but has done nothing meaningful to address the problem in the intervening years.  Under the Liberal government, which was in power for many years, violence on television escalated dramatically, and they did absolutely nothing to curtail the brutal violence in other media, so you won't find much in this section on recent federal government initiatives. 
Ontario has a Liberal government that was very active on the issue of media violence while in opposition, but hasn't done much while in power, although they did introduce a legislated classification system for video games (based on the ESRB classifications), that makes it illegal to sell or rent M or AO rated games to minors.
Click here to read the initiatives on media violence undertaken by the NDP government in British Columbia back in 2000.  This is old news, but should be a template for other provinces, territories and the federal government. (Sorry about the underlining.  These documents are my file copies.)
