Four Winds Tobacco is looking to set up shop in Brooks and have not ruled out supplying to reserves in Western Canada.

“The last thing this province needs is a tobacco factory increasing supply in Alberta and across the West,” says Andrew Klukas, President of the Western Convenience Stores Association (WCSA). “We’ve seen this story before in Central Canada which led to a rise in illegal tobacco trafficking. The recent $5 per carton tobacco tax increase is apparently making Alberta a more attractive target market for illegal suppliers.”
