Ontario Bill 45 Schedule 3

Posted by The VapeMate Team on 11/26/2014 to Industry

On November 24, 2014 the Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Associate Minister, Hon Dipika Damerla and Premier of Ontario, Hon Kathleen Wynne announced and introduced Bill 45 (Making Healthier Choices Act, 2014) in a News Release. In the news release, even though the Bill contains three different legislative Schedules, the Bill appears to be unreasonably focused on restrictions for Electronic Cigarettes.

NS Bill 60 Passed

Posted by The VapeMate Team on 11/20/2014 to Industry

On November 20, 2014, Bill 60 was passed in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly to amend the Smoke-free Places Act and the Tobacco Access Act to regulate e-cigarettes and waterpipes.

There were amendments to the bill in that were perceptively in our favour. However, one of the amendments was the removal of the only part of the Bill which referenced "actual" Tobacco (?): "Bill 60 will proceed without reference to flavoured tobacco or flavoured e-cigarette juice. Government will consult with Nova Scotians on these products that target youth."

Call to Action - NS Bill 60

Posted by The VapeMate Team on 10/27/2014 to Industry

-= CALL TO ACTION =-

-= YOUR HELP IS NEEDED =-

THIS WILL AFFECT EVERYONE

(INCLUDING YOU)

Nova Scotia Bill 60 Amendments

This is a call to action that WILL affect our future in Electronic Cigarettes, Vaping in general and your access to these products.

The Nova Scotia Health Minister, Leo Glavine has introduced an Amendments to Tobacco Legislation in Bill 60. Details can be found here: http://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20141024003

Effectively, these amendments would treat Electronic Cigarettes as Tobacco in virtually all aspects. No more vaping in public, no more visible products, no more flavours and no more vaping in vape shops.
