HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2012) - Dave Bryans, CEO of the Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA) will make a presentation to the City of Hamilton General Issues Committee at City Hall regarding the issue of contraband tobacco in the Hamilton area.
This presentation follows a recent investigation and illegal tobacco seizure by Hamilton/Niagara RCMP officers, after Canada Border Services officers intercepted a large shipment bound for Southwestern Ontario. The shipment contained two million cartons worth of packaging for contraband tobacco. This seizure prevented the loss of tens of millions of dollars in tax revenue, and prevented a mass supply of contraband tobacco entering Southwestern Ontario.
Mr. Bryans will be available for questions and comments before and immediately following his presentation.
