Smoke-Free Movies

Lights...camera...action!

Take a stand against smoking in movies. When young people see smoking in movies, they are more likely to start using tobacco products themselves. 

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to lobby provincial politicians for a stronger film rating system that would deter smoking from being shown in movies aimed at young people. The goal is to add an automatic '18A' rating on any film that contains smoking. Currently, 86 per cent of movies that depict smoking are rated as being OK for Ontario youth to see.
