Letter: Health Canada needs to back off 'babysitting' us

This writer isn't a fan of new cigarette warning labels.
Why are cigarettes being singled out with new Health Canada warning labels, this writer asks.


The new cigarette package/warning on a legal consumer product needs to be added to all bottles of booze, needs to be on the dash of all high-horsepower cars or any product that puts any user at risk.

This "new age" babysitting mentality of Health Canada needs to be on all "risk" products — or back off until "risk" products are deemed illegal.
