From the preface: "This Report covers the period April 2000-March 2001 and is the seventh annual report from the Ontario Tobacco Research Unit (OTRU) to monitor the progress of the Ontario Tobacco Strategy (OTS). The Monitoring Report remains one of the major research-oriented contributions of OTRU to the OTS....Although the Report provides a reasonably comprehensive picture of tobacco control in Ontario, it is not intended to be a conclusive evaluation of individual components or of the Strategy as a whole." [from the report]
