CMAJ whacks feds for going soft on tobacco

on

The Canadian Medical Association Journal has lashed out at the federal Conservative government for backing down on its long-standing commitment to toughen up the warning images on Canadian cigarette packages.

The Canadian government’s LONGSTANDING irresponsibility on climate change policy has left MANY in despair about the degree to which Prime Minister Stephen Harper will put corporate profits ahead of the health and safety of the citizens of Canada – and of the whole world.

Now, Harper’s minions are cuddling up to big tobacco, effecting a policy that has driven the CMAJ to say:
“In the absence of a logical explanation, Canadians should be forgiven for questioning the government’s motives.”

Is this not evidence of creepy consistency?
