Any day now, Canadian vapers expect Health Canada to announce a nationwide restriction for nicotine levels in vaping products that promise to cut by over half the amount of nicotine available in current devices and e-liquids.
It’s also feared the regulator will soon follow with a national ban on e-liquid flavours that is certain to devastate the industry and destroy a vital tool over one million Canadians use to quit smoking.
In this episode of RegWatch, we are joined by Ian Irvine, Professor of Economics at Concordia University and Research Fellow at the C.D. Howe Institute. Hear his warning to Health Canada that these efforts, ostensibly to combat teen vaping, would lead to an increase in smoking-related disease and death.
