The secretary of the state board was charged with maintaining a supply of fresh vaccine viruses for issuance to the county superintendents in the event of an outbreak of small pox, and the county superintendents were required to vaccinate all who applied, all prisoners, inmates of public institutions, and school children.
During epidemics, the state board was authorized to issue regulations to protect the public health in all areas of the state lacking organized local boards of health and to impose penalties as necessary, enforcable by local justices of the peace.
The legislature in 1939 required the state board to establish a system of inspection and approval of used plumbing fixtures and in 1941 required the state board, instead of the insurance commissioner, to enforce all state building code provisions not otherwise covered by local ordinances or rules and regulations of the county health board.

 Let's Get Over Our Nervousness
Classification is the benign, central purpose of the board's mandate, but its task quickly spills over into various levels of censorship: what children can see on their own volition, what parents can allow them to see, and in more than 400 cases, what anyone in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island can see.
Because the board charges $3 per minute to rate films, the number of movies distributed in Nova Scotia has fallen from about 4,000 to about 2,000 per year.
To put the film version of such a novel in the same category as Wrestling Amazons or Ilsa, the Wicked Warden is typical of the pitfalls that occur once government assumes the power to decide what we can watch.

The Maritimes or Maritime provinces are a region of Canada on the Atlantic coast, consisting of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
There is occasional talk of a Maritime Union of the three provinces to have a greater say in national affairs, however, the first discussions on the subject in 1864 at the Charlottetown Conference led to the larger Canadian Confederation instead.
British settlement of the Maritimes, as the colonies came to be known, accelerated throughout the late 18th century and into the 19th century with significant immigration to the region as a result of Scottish migrants displaced by the Highland Clearances and Irish escaping the potato famine.

Since you seem to be some of the people who enjoy B-grade films, be it for personal enjoyment or university studies, I commend you for having the stamina to make it through such a boring, been-there-done-that-a-thousand-times-over Hollywood production.
As for Hollywood, I would like to add that this film was produced on the tail-end of the writers and actors strike.

While departments like health and education suffer cuts, the censor board, which already churns through tax dollars at a $420,000 annual clip, has pulled off an empire-building coup that will double its budget, impose new, hidden, discriminatory taxes, and damage the most worthwhile and fragile elements of the industry it is empowered to regulate.
The censor board's job is to tell grown-up Nova Scotians which films they can and cannot watch, and to classify the former as to levels of sex, violence, nudity and profanity.
Distributors will pay $1.75 per minute to have films rated, unless censors reject the film or deem it to contain ``explicit material,'' in which case the charge will be $4.00 per minute.

Quebec is not at the table for these discussions right now, not for language or cultural reasons, but because their own classification system is beset with problems, namely, high costs to distributors, and is currently under a separate industry-initiated review.
A national system, according to recommendations made by distributors to the Maritime board in mid-June, is a way around the board's recent proposal for screening fees (which Warner Bros. responded to by retracting its video titles from the region).
The recently created Maritime board is still waiting for its proposal to pass legislation.

 Why "Rugrats Go Wild" is Rated PG
The previous 2 Rugrats films were given "G" ratings, despite the fact that they had their share of potty humor as well.
Whether or not a PG rating can make or break a film remains to be seen, though the odds are against Nick -- Thornberrys and Arnold both barely broke even by the time they came to video, while the G-rated Rugrats films (as well as Jimmy Neutron, also rated "G") were huge successes.
It seems that the world is bucking the "PG" trend with this film, by giving their equivalent of a "G" rating, instead of "PG".

 Why "Rugrats In Paris" is Rated G
According to Angelica Reigns Supreme, there were rumors that the film will be rated "PG", rather than the "G" rating it got in the first film.
One thing for certain is that the film will, once again, push the limits for a "G"-rated film, with some peepee-caca jokes, some humor that only adults can understand, scenes that will tend to scare some movie-goers, and, for good measure, a scene featuring Coco LaBouche in her underwear.
Even with films that push the limit, such as the Rugrats movies, G-rated films, and their Canadian equivalents, are few and far between.
