Alberta’s tourism minister says ‘congratulations’ to The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT

Did you know The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT (TLA) is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year?

Here’s some more trivia for you: did you also know that Alberta’s tourism minister, Dr. Richard Starke — who is in the above video — was the sponsor behind a private members bill to ban the sale of flavoured tobacco across the province.

The Lloydminster MLA’s bill passed with unanimous support in Alberta’s legislature, but the bill has yet to be proclaimed by Premier David Hancock’s cabinet.
