In the Light of Day: Smoking Regulation and the Tobacco Industry Education Seminar

The Windsor-Essex Council on Smoking and Health is pleased to extend an invitation to you to attend an education seminar dealing with the issue of smoking regulation. In the past many municipal leaders have expressed concerns about what impact the passage of a smoking regulation by-law would have on their communities. The Council shares those concerns, and has brought together a stellar group of guest speakers to address those concerns based on their first hand experience of what you can expect once a by-law is passed. This seminar will be of interest to anyone involved with municipal administration, workplace health and safety, the hospitality industry, public health, or just members of the general public concerned about tobacco use.
