    Canadian Vaping Association present to Government re regulations VIDEO.

    Moshi CEO, Beju Lakhani and Daniel David, President of E-Vape Canada presented to the committee on Bill 45 on April 20th 2015. This bill was introduced by the majority Liberal government to place restrictions on e-cigarettes and vaping.

    Well worth a watch IMO

    I like his response at 9.00 . Simple ingredients: propylene glycol, glycerine, food flavours, nicotine.

    We need to keep drumming home this point when reports talk about "ecigs" as if they were the vaped product.

    I hope they were listened to.
    The government rep kept on about it being illegal to sell juice without health Canada's authorisation.

    From the CVA facebook page:

    Update on Bill 45 – Making Healthier Choices Act, 2015 – Ontario

    The CVA has been informed that despite our best efforts, Bill 45, including Section 3 – The Electronic Cigarette Act, will pass as it was originally worded. While we had hoped that the Government would be open to listening to our substantial amount of evidence and testimonials, they unfortunately decided to vote down all of the proposed amendments. While this was not entirely expected, we understood it was always a possibility.

    But we are not done yet.

    An Act has little authority without the accompanying regulations, which define how the act is implemented. Although Bill 45 will now become law, the legislation itself is designed as a framework, effectively setting parameters for what regulation of the vaping industry will look like. The upcoming consultation process will enable the government and stakeholders to have the necessary discussions to ensure that any regulations are not excessively impacting the industry or consumers. The CVA, on behalf of all its members, will continue to actively participate in these discussions, with the goal of getting exemptions included in the regulations. That means exemptions for in-store promotion & display, along with vaping in 19+ vape shops, which can still be achieved through the regulation development period.

    Unfortunately, that all those excellent words fell on deaf ears..... again. Once the Government (any Government ! ) can take hold of ALL Importation of vaping supplies then they will be 'Legal' for us vapers to have and use.
    When it comes to the crunch, if the Government isn't making Money then it's illegal or it's still in a "grey" area where they haven't decided as yet. Give them time and they will succeed in making it Legal for us (implying that they are looking after 'us' as a Government ). Everything will in the future work out as long as it is Regulated by the 'Big Boys' and they will tell us what is safe and what isn't.
    my 2c worth.

    You're in luck! Beer has been controlled in alcohol content, taxed and ratified by the government.

    It is now safe for you to proceed.

    What did I say about politicians having already decided, before the discussions and submissions have begun.
    This is to make the public think they are consulted with.
    When in reality they couldn't care less what we think.
