AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:
In the 1980’s, Garfield (“Gar”) Mahood was the head of the Non-Smokers Rights Association (NSRA). The group’s purpose, essentially, was to get people to stop smoking tobacco. In this recording from the Wayne McLean talk show on Radio 98 in London, Ontario, Mahood was McLean’s in-studio guest. Freedom Party president Robert Metz calls in in reaction to Mr. Mahood’s comment, apparently made earlier in the broadcast, that if the London Free Press newspaper and other newspapers do not police themselves as he said they promised to do – i.e.., stop publishing tabacco advertisements – then the NSRA is in favour of a legislated solution (i.e., censorship). NOTE: this is the only portion of the broadcast that was recorded.
