e-1237 (Tobacco)

Initiated by Sherwin Edwards from Brownsburg Chatham, Quebec

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Scientific studies by the Royal College of Physicians in 2016 determined that vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking tobacco;
  • Scientific studies by Victoria University in 2017 backs up and substantiates findings from the Royal College of Physicians studies; and
  • The public and consumer have a right to a effective alternative designed to curb and break deadly tobacco addiction.
We, the undersigned, constituents, call upon the Government of Canada to halt and review Bill S-5 currently making its way through the House of Common. Create a fair and logical category for vape products apart from tobacco.
