Operation Get the Lead Out
Canadian Smoker's Take Back Their Power!!!!
Canadians Want their Voice Heard
Canadians are tired of being not heard. Here is a way that you can
make your voice heard and your opinion known. Gather up all the empty cigarette packs, cigar packs, cigar bands and pipe tobacco packages you can and mail them to the Minister of Health for Canada at the following address. It's free to mail them to your MP if you prefer, you don't need a stamp.
You could also mail some to your local M.P.P., Provincial Premier and Health Minister. Mail is not free to MPP's and MLA's, you may want to check for your own province and territory as this could vary. They have to hear our voice too!!
If you want you could also inform them why you are doing this drastic measure. In order for the government to listen to the smokers. Please put "OPERATION GET THE LEAD OUT" on the package, sign them and put your province on them. If you wish to put your address on them, also request a reply.

We are also strongly encouraging people to write to the Auditor General of Canada and request an audit of all monies paid to the anti-smoking movement and all monies spent on the "denormalization" campaign against smokers in Canada.
Auditor General of Canada contact info.
If you are not motivated enough to mail in your empty packs then you might want to just give Fibber McGuinty a call. The phone number is 416-325-7245 and the fax is 416-325-0803. Yes, you may
not be able to have a smoke in many places in Ontario (and pretty soon in any place in Ontario) but you can call Premier Dalton McGuinty directly and let him know what you think. There are 1.5 million smokers in Ontario, wouldn't it be nice for him to hear from us all.
