Hey folks. Do you know of a Canadian vendor who went out of business because of a bullying letter from HC (and/or problems with Customs) - ?? Or do you know of a Canadian vendor who stopped selling juice w/nic for the same reason(s) - ??
If so, I'd like to know about it. Big vendors, small vendors, you name it. Doesn't matter how long ago or how recent it was. Anyone who has been bullied by HC or the CBSA, & ended up shutting down in part or whole as a result. Trying to get a comprehensive but very basic list together of all so-affected Canadian vape vendors - just the names, dates, & gist of what happened. So for example:
- November 2010 - ceased selling juices w/nic, due to letter from HC
- April 2011 - went out of business altogether, due to letter from HC
If you also know of a way to contact the affected vendors (particularly if they've gone out of business) - so that I can find out more details from them, or at least confirm the dates & basic gist of what went down - so much the better. Please post the information you have in this thread (though if you prefer, you can PM me).
Note: Please keep this thread on-topic with the requested info, rather than filling it with discussion of how crappy vendor-shutdowns are (we all know shutdowns suck). And please read first, to see if your info has already been shared, thanks.
This basic information is going to be used in an important letter to HC & various government officials. I'm not writing the letter, lol - but I am helping the person who is writing it, by trying to see if any shutdowns in Canada (for juice w/nic, or altogether) which I'm not yet aware of, have occurred. And if so - when, & why. My Google & forum-search skills have taken me so far; now it's time to see if anyone here has more to share. Again, doesn't matter how long ago it occurred - it's relevant.
Thanks for sharing, happy vaping...& vape proud!
