Ontario just had an anniversary worth celebrating. On Tuesday, May 31, 2016 – World No-Tobacco Day – the Smoke-Free Ontario Act hit the ten-year mark. This life-saving milestone presents a perfect opportunity to reflect on our past successes, take stock of where we are today, and plan for our tobacco-free future.
For the last issue of 2015 we asked organizations and individuals to reflect on the impact the new Liberal Government could have on the health of Canadians.
