Removing Cigarettes from Pharmacies sign now

British Columbia Members of the Legislature are expected to decide in early May whether or not to prohibit pharmacies from selling tobacco.
The private member's bill to change the Tobacco Statutes will be presented by MLA David Cubberly (NDP).
Seven other provinces in Canada have already banned tobacco products from pharmacies which means that 90\% of all pharmacies throughout Canada do not sell tobacco products. The College of Pharmacists of British Columbia has lobbied the government for the past five years on this issue, but the government has bowed to pressure from large chain stores, refusing to change legislation.
Individual pharmacists, as health professionals, provide important health services to their customers and want to be able to continue working in stores that support health prevention.
Members of the British Columbia Medical Association, the Canadian Cancer Society, the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation, the B.C. Lung Foundation, the Clean Air Coalition and Aerspace support this bill. In fact, prescriptions written from the Cancer Society, suggest that patients fill them in pharmacies that do not sell tobacco. This is almost impossible in B. C.
The government rarely passes Private Members' Bills, but we hope that MLAs from all parties will put health promotion above big business and approve this.
Please add your name to this petition. It will be forwarded to Premier Gordon Campbell and Health Minister George Abbott.
