  • First Nations call for regulation of legitimate tobacco market

    Nipissing First Nation, Canada (ICC)

    In response to government and RCMP concern over alleged trade of illicit tobacco, a First Nations leader is proposing a plan that would legitimize tobacco products produced and sold by First Nations.

    Grand Council Chief John Beaucage is proposing the legitimization of the First Nations tobacco industry, involving self-regulation process whereby the First Nations tobacco industry would implement controls on tobacco such as marketing bans, licensing of tobacco retailers and implementing a taxation regime that would bring more competitive pricing to the industry and directly benefit First Nations health programs.
