The members and directors of Airspace Action on Smoking & Health would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to a world leader in tobacco control, Mr. Gar Mahood.

After becoming a lifetime member of the world-renowned Non-Smokers' Rights Association about 20 years ago and attending several NSRA AGMs and various and sundry anti-tobacco conferences over the years, I'm proud to call Gar a friend.

Again, congratulations Gar, on having the Order of Canada recently bestowed upon you. You have been, you are and you will no doubt continue to be one of the biggest reasons why the good guys are winning the War on Tobacco.

Errol E. Povah
President, Airspace Action on Smoking & Health
