Need to Know: Cigarette Warnings, Pure Country Sacks Hunger, Food Bank and Schools

NEED-TO-KNOW-POLOPOLY

New Canadian regulations would put warning on each cigarette

Canada is poised to become the first country in the world to require that a warning be printed on every cigarette.

The move builds on Canada's mandate to include graphic photo warnings on tobacco products' packaging -- a groundbreaking policy that started an international trend when it was introduced two decades ago.

While the exact messaging printed on cigarettes could change, the current proposal is: “Poison in every puff.”

 

Pure Country Sacks Hunger

Starting today you can drop off nonperishable food items to the station at 4303 South Albert in support of the Regina Food Bank! As a thank you we’ll enter you to win Saturday Day Passes to Country Thunder Saskatchewan!

Then join Pure Country Morning’s Chase Hussey as he broadcasts from Mosaic Stadium on Sunday, June 26th to help fill the shelves of the Regina Food Bank.

 For every donation of ten pounds or $10 Chase will move up the field one yard.

Thanks to Northgate Mall, Robin’s Donuts, Ukrainian Co-Op, Suds Car Wash, Sherwood Co-Op, and Four Seasons Sales

 

Regina Food Bank and Schools Team up

The Regina Food Bank has partnered up with eight schools around Regina as children account for around 43 percent of food bank users.

This new program will feature school lunches, weekend snacks, and a summer food hamper costing about $300 thousand per year to run. Donations and support can be provided through www.reginafoodbank.ca
