What: Join us in calling on Big Tobacco to stop killing
BECAUSE OF TOBACCO COMPANIES, 105 CANADIAN BABIES DONíT
LIVE TO TAKE THEIR FIRST STEPS.
Every year, the use of tobacco industry products results in
the death of 105 Canadians under 1 year of age.
More than 5% of infant deaths are associated with exposure
to second-hand smoke, through Sudden Infant Death and
respiratory disease. Thatís more than twice as many as are
killed in unintentional injuries, like car accidents,
drowning, and fires.
There infant deaths are profoundly tragic. And the
response of tobacco companies has been dismal. They
continue to deny their responsibilities towards these most
innocent victims of their business.
We think itís time the companies did more. Weíre asking
1. Admit that their products kill non-smokers, including
2. Establish measure to reduce the number of babies killed
by their products.
3. Apologize to the families who have suffered the loss of
an infant which may have been attributable to the use
of tobacco products.
On Wednesday, April 24th at 10:30am weíll be gathering at
Parliament Hill to send the companies this message in a
colourful way. If you want to join us, please call
