CTV Toronto covers smoking in Oscar movies

CTV News Toronto ran a story the day before the 2017 Oscars, describing the Ontario Coalition for Smokefree Movies campaign to win an 18A rating (equivalent to an R-rating in the US) for future movies with smoking.

The segment by CTV correspondent Paul Bliss includes an interview with Ontario's Minister for Consumer Affairs, Tracy McCharles. That ministry oversees the provincial film ratings.
