Tobacco Industry
“The [Tobacco] Group made fantastic profits from its actions. They conspired to conceal their conduct. They set about to defeat government policy designed to discourage the spread of smoking, which they knew to be harmful, including to Canada’s youth. They succeeded in their efforts, and deprived Canada of more than a billion in taxes and duties.”
(Conclusion of the Attorney General’s Statement, 2003)
