Quotes

"We encourage the federal government to put a framework in place to protect particularly young people from electronic cigarettes and make sure they are regulated in the way that tobacco is regulated" Lake said at the ministers conference in Banff, Alta., on Tuesday
"The goal was to open by the end of the year but all 12 board members, even though they didn't want to make the call decided it wasn't working. We were far off our fundraising total and in good faith, we didn't want to take any more money out of the community" says Barb Revelle, Executive Director
"Menthol is the most popular flavour among youth," Angeline Webb, a society spokeswoman, says in a release. "We cannot allow tobacco companies to make tobacco more attractive, addictive and harmful to youth."
"We're very concerned that the law only addresses some of the issue around flavoured tobacco, and it does it quite late" said Genevieve Bois of the Quebec Coalition for Tobacco Control
