  • UP FROM THE ASHES brings to life the dramatic story of the no-holds-barred fight between the Canadian health community and the tobacco industry over the 1997 federal Tobacco Act. This multi-faceted tobacco control bill was intended to fill a legislative vacuum created after the industry challenged the previous anti-tobacco legislation in the courts and won. This instructional and entertaining documentary is presented by Dorothy Lamont, CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society. It can be used by any teacher or student interested in the real political forces that shape legislation in Canada.
