Canada is poised to become the first country in the world to require that a warning be printed on every cigarette to reach more people, including youth who often share cigarettes and don’t see the packaging.

 

A 75-day consultation period is to begin Saturday. Ottawa has also revealed expanded warnings for cigarette packages that include a longer list of smoking’s health effects. Canada has required photo warnings since 2000, but the images have not been updated in a decade. Officials with the Canadian Cancer Society note that Canada also set a precedent by requiring the photo warnings, with other countries following suit.
