Toronto, ON, Nov. 24, 2014 – Ontario’s Doctors welcomed the introduction today of the Making Healthier Choices Act, which will help protect our youth from the dangers of tobacco. “Every day, I see people in my office who are seriously ill or who are dying because of smoking. Flavoured tobacco products are aimed squarely at children and teenagers. Ontario’s Doctors welcome this legislation because it will work to protect our children from flavoured tobacco products and reduce the number of youth who start smoking,” said Dr. Scott Wooder, Past President of the Ontario Medical Association.
Ontario’s Doctors have advocated for menthol cigarettes to be included in any ban on flavoured tobacco, in an effort to help curb the number of youth who smoke.
