“SEVERAL AYLMER TOBACCO SELLERS CHARGED WITH  MINORS VIOLATIONS IN 2009″

(Elgin-St Thomas Health Unit recently released 2009 stats on Store compliance with tobacco sales laws especially on sales to minors which showed that Elgin retailers had their best rate – 90% – in several years.  According to Kathy Daniel, Unit Tobacco Compliance and Education Officer, retailers are obligated to request age proof for those who appear to be under 25. Aylmer’s compliance rate at 86% was actually up but still below the county average. Stores were given the choice of being charged or undergoing more staff training. The following Aylmer stores were charged last year:  Esso,  and Tracys NoFrills Gas Bar (the second straight year for Esso).  The Health Unit provided the following additional info to AylmerNews.)

1.  All places that sell tobacco (except those with a liquor licence) are checked twice a year by test shoppers.  We also do regular inspections for display ban and signage compliance.
2.  In 2008, convictions and fines of $365. were registered against personnel at Aylmer Gas & Convenience, Aylmer ESSO, and Family Mart  -there were others in previous years.
3.  I can’t say for sure why rates are up.  In theory, the display ban should increase compliance but I have not seen any studies that prove it.  The Health Unit is not doing anything differently.
