“Once again, Ontario is on the leading edge of tobacco-related policies, Associate Health Minister Dipika Damerla introducing legislation banning all flavoured tobacco, including menthol, and treating e-cigarettes like traditional cigarettes. Aiming for passage of the bill to take effect January 1, 2016, the law would limit the sale and consumption of e-cigarettes by anyone under 19 years of age and their use would be restricted to the same places as regular cigarettes. With backing from the Board of Directors, Kyle Davies forwarded the following letter to Associate Health Minister Damerla supporting the proposed legislation on behalf of the RTSO.”
