	WHEREAS: The vast majority of tobacco users regret their decision to start smoking and 	find their ability to quit using tobacco constrained because of nicotine addiction; and 

	WHEREAS: We have a responsibility to protect the publicˇ¦s health, especially those who are 	young and most vulnerable. 

	WHEREAS: An estimated 1/3 of adolescent experimentation with smoking can be directly 	attributed to tobacco advertising and promotional activities.

	NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the Town of Brant 
	hereby supports the efforts of Erie-Niagara Tobacco-Free Coalition and to protect the 	children of Erie and Niagara Counties and the Town of Brant by asking local retailers to 	reduce tobacco advertising by doing the following:
