Actions Will Speak Louder than Words: Getting Serious About Tobacco Control in Ontario, A Report to the Minister of Health from her Expert Panel on the Renewal of the Ontario Tobacco Strategy

From the Executive Summary: "We recommend that the Government of Ontario take action on tobacco prices, public education, marketing including packaging, labelling and information disclosure, retail controls, smoke-free spaces, supports for smoking cessation, finance and infrastructure, research, monitoring and evaluation, and cost recovery litigation. Action is needed in all of these areas

if the tobacco disaster is to be abated. Piece-meal measures, based on ease of implementation, low cost, or other considerations, will not work."
