MONTREAL, April 3, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Counsel for the CQTS-Blais and Létourneau class actions will be heard tomorrow and Friday by the Ontario Superior Court, which has authorized JTI-MacDonald, Imperial Tobacco and Rothmans, Benson & Hedges to seek protection from their creditors in recent weeks. These orders of the Ontario Superior Court were delivered following the March 1 decision of the Quebec Court of Appeal, which condemned the three tobacco companies to pay $ 13.6 billion to 100,000 Quebec tobacco victims.
As an applicant in this case, the Quebec Council on Tobacco and Health (CQTS) invites the media to contact Me André Lespérance and Me Bruce Johnston, who represent the victims and will be present at the Ontario Superior Court.
April 4 and 5 starting at 10 am
Ontario Superior Court

Mr. Mario Bujold, Strategic Advisor of the CQTS is also available for an interview in Montreal.
Towards a Tobacco-Free Quebec is the mission of the CQTS, which has been working for 42 years to mobilize stakeholders from various sectors to prevent and reduce tobacco consumption in Quebec.
