Outrage is growing over news that Health Canada has suddenly suspended plans to order new visual warnings to be printed on cigarette packages....I love hyperbolic advocacy reporting -- who doesn't?! Canadians are outraged, and our outrage is growing! Well, nobody that I know is outraged. But, some Canadians somewhere, those who already know about this, they are outraged!
... two internationally recognized experts on cigarette packaging called the decision seriously wrong-headed....
The decision to cancel the refreshed warnings, including the plans to add a toll-free, quit smoking number, is tragic.OK. Right there -- there's two Canadians, and they are both outraged.
Where will this lead us? Will this wrong-headed tragedy lead to problems? Quite possibly:
The professor also noted that the initiative could be implemented in essence with a stroke of the health minister’s pen, at no cost to tax payers.Health Minister's may have a stroke? Yikes! This is serious!
I am outraged, as in, I mean, raged-out!
