Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My first questions are about cancer screening. As Mr. Wheatley-Price said, when cancer is diagnosed, it is often no longer treatable. It is actually already difficult to treat or untreatable. So only the symptoms are treated.
I have a question about screening programs. At what age and in what situations are screening tests recommended? Of course, those tests are recommended to smokers, but would it be a good idea to recommend them to welders and people who work in a more at-risk environment? Who should be the focus of the screening program? In an ideal world, of course, at what age would it be preferable to begin with those tests to make sure we identify as many people with lung cancer as possible?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My question is for the deputy minister.
The government receives $700 million in supplementary revenue because of the increased tobacco tax, but it does not use that money to reduce smoking. Instead, the government has cut funds set aside for reducing smoking.
The government has also put forward weak regulations against flavoured tobacco. It isn't following the lead of other countries, like Australia, that impose regulations on uniform packaging.
When will the government get serious about reducing the biggest predictable cause of death in Canada?

Of course, there has been a drop in tobacco use, but the costs for smoking-related health care resulting from smoking are still quite substantial. When you see people smoking outside hospitals with their IV drips, you have to wonder how many of them are unaffected by this government action and find themselves in this situation.
Shouldn't extra effort be made?

Very good.
You said there were three types of smokers. Can all three benefit equally from e-cigarettes?
