The Canadian Cancer Society is calling on all political parties to adopt meaningful and actionable platform commitments to address significant gaps in cancer prevention and support for those living with cancer. You can encourage party leaders and local candidates across New Brunswick to make cancer a priority by supporting our recommendations.
Our priority issues
Youth Vaping / Tobacco 21 - Too many New Brunswick youth are vaping and smoking. Implement e-cigarette legislation including to restrict flavours, set maximum nicotine levels, ban sales except in adult-only specialty vape shops, taxation on e-cigarettes and an increase in the minimum legal age for access to tobacco products, including e-cigarettes to 21.
Advance Palliative Care Strategy - Expedite the implementation of the already approved and funded Palliative Care Strategy in 2018 to improve access to palliative care for the people of New Brunswick.
