Opinion: Banning flavoured vapes would promote harm, not reduce it

Health Canada’s 15-person delegation is now back from the World Health Organization’s recent jamboree on tobacco control, held in Panama, a world tobacco smuggling nexus.

Energized and ready, the Health Canada team is turning its attention to discouraging e-cigarettes in this country.


12.50% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 3.9 million current smokers in Canada 14.80% of men are current smokers but only 10.20% of women.
