Anti-tobacco groups worry a change in government could further delay or erase tobacco legislation. After languishing for five years, a few key sections of the Alberta Tobacco Reduction Amendment Act will expire at the end of the year.

Sections of the act which ban E-cigarettes in indoor public spaces and prohibit flavoured water-pipe tobacco use will cease to be active unless they are proclaimed over the next year, says Les Hagen, executive director of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH).
