Stop Bill 45 from Banning Vaporizers

The Healthier Choices Act, which inexplicably bans vaporizers/e-cigarettes has been sent to Committee. Here's my question to the Minister responsible today - it's clear the Liberals just don't get it. Click here to Learn how you can be heard:

Freedom of Choice 

Once again this Liberal Government is restricting your freedom to make healthy choices for yourself. Disguising it as the “Making Healthy Choices Act”, Schedule 3 of this Act will in fact drive people away from healthier choices and back to tobacco. 

Many thousands of people have successfully quit smoking thanks to vaporizers, or “e-cigs” as they are sometimes called. Between 95 and 99% cleaner than cigarettes, there is no scientific or medical evidence that suggests vaporizers cause inhalable exposure to contaminants or warrant any health concerns - yet this government would like to regulate them as they do with tobacco and alcohol.

    35 yr smoker and nothing worked. I tried everything on the market including prescriptions. I have been cigarette free for 3 1/2 years thanks to ecigs. So has my husband, daughter and son in law. Don’t take this away from us. It works.
