Winnipeg North MP Judy Wasylycia-Leis has finally won the fight to ban flavoured tobacco products in Winnipeg.

Flavoured tobacco products are believed to be target to youths and a ban will help prevent them from being hooked on tobacco.

The bill will outlaw “the use of cigarillos with candy and fruit flavours added to lure young smokers.”

I think this is a great move… Tobacco is a highly addictive product. More and more teens and pre-teens are showing up to school with some candy flavoured cigarettes. Let’s get these things out of our city. Smoking kills.
