Proposed tobacco law changes are a good start but more action needed to protect youth, says Canadian Lung Association

Ottawa –The Canadian Lung Association welcomes the announcement yesterday from Health Minister Rona Ambrose of new legislation to further restrict the use of flavours in most types of cigars. However, the Association urges the government to go further and ban all flavoured tobacco products in Canada, including menthol.

Flavour is not restricted to cigars. Water pipe and chew tobacco are all widely available in fruit and candy flavours.
