In fact, Mr. Speaker, the rhetoric did sound pretty tough.
I have a quote from the previous Minister of Health. It states: “Whatever the ostensible intent of the tobacco companies, their rich, promotional campaigns reach our youth”. Then they sent a sneaky letter to the race car teams just before the election. To do what? To give them an exemption.
The health minister in his heart of hearts knows this is wrong. Why did he not just simply say, no chance?
