Agree and will do my part. Hope everyone else does as well and also spreads the news to other groups they may be part of.

Doesn’t Australia have this already? It’s terrible Canada already has ridiculous laws

Absolutely. It has destroyed the Oz retailer base. Those remaining sell more overpriced accessories and ties/pens than cigars.  Within 5 years there will be no pure B&M cigar retailer remaining in Oz. 

Don't let that happen to Canada.

Sent.  We already incredibly ridiculous laws.  No lounges, no smoking in parks, and a tax rate so obscene the government should at least have the courtesy buy us dinner first.

I'm hoping you'll still be able to serve us if the worst case scenario happens.

So I went to a higher end B&M today north of Toronto looking to grab a few singles (damn QdO No. 50's are impossible to find). I wasn't totally shocked by the prices ($48 Dip #2 anyone? how about a $175+ Talisman?) but I was surprised at the lack of selection & some suspect looking boxes (Robs "seconds" would put these to shame). I walked out with a new found appreciation of this place. Where else can you get a constant stream of quality cigars at great prices...

The prices aren't the local tobacconists fault. That's gov't taxes at work.  Not all B&M's have the same stock.  It will vary.

Would it also be worth writing to Doug Ford?

Perhaps.  I've heard he smokes cigars now and then, but....fake CC's.  LOL.

Might be worthwhile. I sense that there is at least something in him that despises governmental regulation. I keep on asking him on twitter to sell the LCBO.

Yeah I was trying to point out how the gov already taxes the crap out of Cigars. Might as well just ban them at these prices ... on second thought lets not give them any ideas haha.

Yep. I don't understand how any Canadian retailers survive today- the taxes are mind-boggling.

And I wish you the best in your decidedly uphill climb.

Does anyone know if it's possible/helpful for a non-resident Canadian citizen (like me) to sign/send this?

American tourists.  If Cubans became legal to sell in the states, it would hit Canadian retailers hard.
