Still smoking?

This is becoming a habit. The Coast should stop printing cigarette ads and run a printed retraction explaining why The Coast would print them in the first place.

To the editor,

I read Geoffrey Allen's letter about your decision to print an advertisement for cigarettes. The reader expressed outrage at The Coast's willingness to disregard Canadian law and moral responsibility and print a tobacco advertisement. I was further shocked to see the same full-page advertisement featured again in last week's paper. As a long-time reader, I expect not to see such an advertisement again, and a printed retraction explaining why The Coast would print it in the first place. ---Corey, Halifax

The MacKay Bridge and Barrington Street are taking loooong construction vacations this summer, making driving to and through the city harder. Will your commute be OK?
