    Very well written letter. I fear it will fall on deaf ears though; if Govts were susceptible to logic and hard facts, this issue wouldn't be an issue

    Hopefully enough reasonable human beings will read it and be forced to challenge their "this bloke at the pub told me..." viewpoints.

    Thanks for sharing David. In my opinion, it amazes me just how little power we have in changing the law, only the judge or a lobby group can do that. I see it in the ads all the time, smoking kills, call the quit helpline. Quit helpline says here buy a bunch of gum and patches that will put more money in the gov't pocket that has a 10% success rate and the vicious circle continues.

    Hello folks,

    Thanks for reading and sharing the letter. It was originally sent to the Canadian Prime Minister, Health Minister, Provincial Premiers and Health Ministers, and of course a whack of press.

    I get that it can feel disheartening when battling a politician, but as they say, this isn't exactly my first rodeo (although my previous rodeo didn't involve the Fed's the principles are all the same). The key is to keep pounding until the press grabs it. The only thing a politician fears more than a loss of life.... is a reporter

    Again, thanks for reading and sharing. Here's to your fight, my fight, the UK fight. All the fights.

    Hey MM, loved your open letter so much I shared it with the great Clive Bates on twitter. Hopefully he'll give it a read.
