In November 2016 the Canadian Government came out with a proposal that will essentially restrict vaping products in the same way tobacco products are restricted. The new proposed legislation aims to; "to protect young Canadians from nicotine addiction and tobacco use. At the same time, it introduces an approach to vaping products that considers their potential benefits to smokers."
The new proposal also suggests creating rules on how vaping products are displayed. We need to ensure that the new proposed changes allows the continued proper display of products for customer education.
There is also a possibility that you will no longer be able to use online shopping to buy products. This will restrict access to some of your favourite e liquid brands and vaporizer products.
The Canadian Government is currently looking for public feedback on this proposal. If Vaping has helped you or a family member/friend reduce or quit tobacco, it is imperative that you implore the Canadian Government that they should create smart legislation (as done in other regions within Canada; see Calgary, AB ) that exempts Vendors from the proposed changes. This exemption is crucial to the continued success of the electronic cigarette industry in Canada. We need as many voices as possible, so that the Canadian Government continues to support rather than hinder attempts to use vaping as a tool to quit or reduce tobacco use. This why is it important to have your say.
Now is your time to tell your story. By submitting the form above, your comments will be directly e-mailed to the committee responsible for these changes. You will also be added to the list of supporters who are against the proposed legislation changes. This why is it important to have your say before time runs out.
