Cancer opponents invoke spirit of John and Yoko
MONTREAL — The late John Lennon once noted, while lying in bed in room 1742 of the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, that, “Everybody's talking about this-ism, that-ism, ism ism ism.” Well now another group has occupied that very room in an effort to get people talking about cancer labeling.Breast Cancer Montreal is borrowing the fabled space to lobby for the mandatory labeling of products that can cause breast cancer.The anti-cancer gang has eschewed the traditional pink-ribbon campaign route but will hardly be lying around John and Yoko bed-in style to push for their cause.
Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
