I am opposed to classing Vaping and it products with the Tobacco guidelines. I am an ex smoker of 27 years, it has done me great good to vape i can breath again and can also walk up a flight of steps with out having to take a break i think we should follow the UK in regards to vaping

Hi,
I am opposed to classing Vaping and it products with the Tobacco guidelines. I am an ex smoker of 58 years and it was the use of vaping that has kept me off Tobacco for the last 18 months!! I am an Emphysema patient thanks to the Tobacco industry.
I find that some members of parliament do not do any background investigation into the legislation they support….they just rely on the Big Pharmacies and Tobacco lobbyist for the Mis information.

@jared I understand what the Ministry of Health wrote, but what they wrote is still not written into the legislation, there is no implementation date in the legislation itself. This is why I am questioning the validity of their letter. Is it set in stone or are they fearmongering? Never hurts to ask the ones who know for clarification, which is why I am asking Mr. Hillier, as he has the inside scoop.

Love your letter and thank you for your dedication to the truth.

I wanted to find out more about the regulations coming into effect Jan 1/16 to see if our rally had any effect.

When I went on the Ontario.ca laws website, it appears they have omitted S. 16 which provides the implementation dates. http://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/150337

What does this mean for retailers?

Excellent stuff Randy.
I couldn’t believe our health minister stated that the mist from cannabis is not harmful but yet states the mist alone if used for e-cigs…is.
That just doesn’t make any sense in the least.

Chris Miller – I’m glad to hear about your invitation to work with the associations – people can make change!

jared Grey it doesnt matter which party you think our votes have anything to do with is appointed. Facts are facts money can be a huge deal maker or breaker. Until we in the industry and even us as Canadian citizens refuse to allow our rights to be taken away by the same people that put them in place for all Canadians. Bill 45, Section 3 is not only detrimental to the economy monetarily and will result in job loss’ but the loss of some of our given rights in the Charter. I have been invited to work with the E-cigarette associations to bring my knowledge to the legislative assembly. Along with scientific,medical data, lab results and negotiations in making sure the bill doesn’t decimate the E-cig industry for every Ontarian and Canadians alike.

Here here sir.. It’s a little too late for the industry.. Looks like the Liberals will go ahead and axe an fledgling industry at the behest of big tobaccopharma and partisn interests..

When will Canadians wake up to the reality of a Liberal government in Canada..

I’m embarrassed and the jokes on us..

I’m not from Ontario, but what you’ve written should be sent to every province’s premiers as well! Well done!

Thank you sincerely Randy for responding to our plea. Non other in our political system has bothered to stand as tall as you have for the smoker….who needs the help from those who should have considered why we now vape. This will not be forgotten.

Regards on behalf of THRA and smokers everywhere.

This is a great letter and it should be shared with all the MP’s. Vaping is in direct competition with traditional tobacco and I am completely offended that it has been lumped in with it. The science is there, ignoring it only reveals that the minister is more interested in the fat chunk of change she is getting from tobacco tax than she is with the health of Canadians.

Thank you MP Hillier for standing up for thousands of people in Ontario, for rational science and logical information.
