LETTERS: B.C.’s nonsensical one-stop shopping

Ours is the only province where you can fill prescriptions and buy cigarettes

Editor:

I hope British Columbians are happy that the flu vaccine is available only in drug stores — not doctors’ offices.

This way, people will be able to buy their cigarettes when they get their flu shot. One-stop shopping, eh?

B.C. is the only jurisdiction in all of Canada where deadly tobacco products are allowed to be sold in stores that fill prescriptions.

Why is that?
