Council wants airlines to supply nicotine lift
The Canadian Council for Non-Smoking is asking the country's airlines to provide nicotine replacement products, such as patches and gum, to ease the pain for smokers.
The Toronto-based association of business executives and academics dedicated to helping people quick smoking says there's a direct correlation between nicotine withdrawal and air rage.
Confining heavy smokers to a smoke-free flight is simply asking for turbulence, says group spokesman Frank Dwyer.
So, to help ease the pain, the council wants Transport Canada to force airlines to quench passengers' nicotine cravings.
