Health officials are urging a City of Calgary committee to adopt tough new rules prohibiting “vaping” wherever smoking is not allowed.
“We’re supporting the recommendations that e-cigarettes be treated like tobacco products so they’d be subject to the same restrictions,” said Dr. Brent Friesen, Alberta Health Services medical officer of health.
Phase 2 of a two-part review will be presented to the city’s community and protective services committee on Tuesday. The review includes the results of a 560-person citizen survey that found 70 per cent were opposed to e-cigarette use in public areas including workplaces, restaurants and stores.
