Liberals target flavored tobacco
The Liberal government will take steps to ban flavored tobacco.
Health and Wellness Minister Leo Glavine said on Thursday that his government is looking at comprehensive legislation this spring that would also include e-cigarettes.
“This is, again, Big Tobacco looking at a way … (to attract) new smokers and we are going to put a ban on flavored tobacco,” he said.
On Wednesday, the Nova Scotia division of the Canadian Cancer Society released results of a poll showing 65 per cent of Nova Scotians would support such a ban.
