Initiated by adam ward from Calgary, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • Canada has taken a position in favour of harm reduction for many products;
  • Scientific studies have found vaping products are up to 95% less harmful than smoking cigarettes;
  • Vaping products have provided a lifeline for millions of Canadian smokers seeking to quit cigarettes;
  • Smokers trying to quit cigarettes in favour of vaping are seeking to disassociate vaping with the taste of smoking tobacco;
  • Adult consumers prefer a range of vaping product flavours beyond tobacco;
  • Health Canada is considering regulations to ban vaping product flavours beyond tobacco;
  • Losing flavoured vaping products would make the transition away from smoking much harder;
  • The House of Commons, not unelected bureaucrats, should be deciding on policies that impact the lives of millions of Canadians; and
  • Canada remains a country where individual choice and personal responsibility are paramount.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to protect the rights and health of adult vapers by ensuring that a reasonable range of flavoured products remains available to help them quit smoking and adopt a healthier alternative.
