Because of the health risks associated with smoking, tobacco is one of the most regulated products in the world, as it should be.
Today, however, we are seeing a trend towards ineffective and excessive regulation. Several new rules have failed to meet their stated objectives and, in some cases, have proven counter-productive. No longer are these ineffective and excessive regulations aimed at tobacco products alone. In Canada and abroad, the list includes junk food, soda, sugar… and it is growing in leaps and bounds.
Join us and listen to the president of Imperial Tobacco Canada speak about how a phenomenon that was once unique to the tobacco industry has crossed the line and how this spectre of over-regulation may impact you.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to this most interesting luncheon presentation.
Please note that Mrs Polet will not be available for interviews
with media representatives after her speech.
