As of today, the Canadian Paediatric Society issued a new policy statement on circumcision. Some aspects closely echo the 2012 AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) statement, with flawed myths included (HPV, cancer, UTI, STI, HIV), but highlights a few of the many hazards of genital cutting, and clearly states that the CPS "does not recommend routine circumcision of every newborn boy."

Many of the responses issued to the AAP in 2012 are applicable here as well. You'll find them linked in a list at the bottom of this page: http://www.drmomma.org/2012/08/aap-circumcision-policy-statement.html
