Professor Steve Manske from the University of Waterloo is available to speak to the media on the Canadian Cancer Society’s new report on the use of flavoured tobacco among Canadian youth.  

Professor Manske can also address the various provincial releases related to the national release, such as those from the Ontario Campaign for Action on Tobacco and Campaign for a Smoke-Free Alberta.
