It’s an original sin of Canada’s federal vaping regulations, the enshrinement of vaping as a health hazard rather than a safer nicotine source for smokers trying to quit.
Every aspect of Health Canada’s approach to vaping regulation and its public health messaging is based on this tenuous assumption.
Health Canada’s authority to regulate vaping products rests in the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act, and the regulator recently kicked off the first official review of the three-year-old legislation.
With the specter of teen vaping all-pervasive and a possible flavour ban around the corner: Is Health Canada failing its mission to protect the health of “all Canadians?”
Today on RegWatch, we are joined by David Lévesque, national vaping activist and founding partner at Digital Smoke Supplies. Get a full rundown of the most pernicious aspects of the TVPA and learn how you can have your say with an easy-to-use website that streamlines submissions to Health Canada.
