The operator must also post a notice in public view prohibiting the sale of tobacco to minors, and a warning attributed to the Minister concerning the harmful effects of tobacco on health as soon as the warning is provided by the Minister.
The Government may make regulations determining the standards governing the display of the notice.
No person may remove or deface such a notice.
The first paragraph does not apply to the operator of a duty free shop licensed as such under the Customs Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 2nd Supplement).
