More than 5,000 convenience store owners have not yet installed “garage-style” coverings that will hide cigarettes from consumers to meet new regulations, the Ontario Convenience Stores Association says. The group is calling on the government to grant an extension past the May 31 compliance deadline.
“There is so much confusion,” association president Dave Bryans said today. “There are only six or seven companies that can install the covers and there’s many stores who won’t have it done on time.”
“But this is not about punishing the little guy,” Health Promotion Ministry spokesman Rick Byun said. “This is about helping people get healthy.”
True, moron, many store owners will get healthy by doing arm curls all day.
