Statement by Dr. Ken Arnold, President, Ontario Medical Association



    Re: Passage of Bill 69 - Smoke Free Amendment Act 2008

    TORONTO, June 16 /CNW/ - "Ontario's doctors would like to congratulate
all MPPs for taking steps to protect the health of our children from the
dangers of second-hand smoke (SHS). As doctors, we know how important it is to
protect our children now so that they are able to lead healthy lives as
adults. Doctors have been calling for a ban since 2004 and raising awareness
about the serious impacts on children of SHS in cars. The amount of support it
has received publicly and from MPPs of all stripes is an indication that more
people are becoming educated about the negative health impacts of smoking.
We're very excited to see this significant piece of legislation become a
reality."
