E-cigarettes to face limitations in Manitoba, Report

Manitoba is about to join a growing number of provinces that limit the use of electronic cigarettes.

Legislation is on the way that would amend the Non-Smokers Health Protection Act.

That’s the law that banned smoking in all indoor public places.

Other provinces have or are in the process of restricting the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and their use in some public facilities.

The Winnipeg School Division banned them last year.

Manitoba Healthy Living Minister Deanne Crothers said a new law will restrict how e-cigarette products are promoted, likely ban the sale to minors and their use in some places.

“I do want to create a clear indication to members of the public where it’s appropriate to vape,” said Deanne Crothers.

More details are expected when the proposed legislation is released on June 1.

    1. Oh no! A means of quitting smoking that is entirely independent of the Canadian government AND the pharmaceutical companies! It must be stopped! Seriously though, it’s Canada, so anyone with a smile on their face, is surely in need of some form of punishment. I vape everywhere, good luck collecting my fines you government swine 🙂

    2. Oh no…eBay sells e-cigarettes. Let’s ban eBay. Politicians live in a time warp about 2 decades behind the rest of us.
