Canadian Cancer Society pushes for ban of flavoured tobacco products in Saskatchewan
REGINA – The Canadian Cancer Society of Saskatchewan is pushing for a provincial ban on flavoured tobacco products, and a survey of Saskatchewan residents show that most agree.
“They tend to lure kids into experimentation. They mask the harsh flavour of tobacco, which, again, makes experimenting easier,” said CCS’ Donna Pasiechnik.
A recent Ipsos Reid Online Omnibus survey paid for by the CCS shows that four out of five people in the province support a ban on flavoured tobacco products, something other provinces have already done, or are pursuing.
