Senators then hear from Dr. Peter Selby (clinician scientist, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) and Neil Collishaw (research director, Physicians for a Smoke-Free Canada).

The last panel is made up of Rob Cunningham (senior policy analyst, Canadian Cancer Society) and Amy Henderson (public policy manager, Canadian Lung Association).
