    This is what we in the USA have to look forward to when we finally make the full-fledged transition to socialized healthcare. I feel bad for you Canadians and I feel bad for us since we will be in your shoes in a few short years. My condolences.

    Well, I don't want to get into a debate, but your statement is practically a non sequitur considering this has nothing to do with public health care. HC is just the Canadian FDA.

    You can, however, look forward to paying about half of what you currently do.

    It's unbelievable that HC tries to enforce laws that don't even exist. They assume that people don't know the politics of ecigs and that people are going to just listen to whatever they say. Wrong! We new what's going on and we're not going to back down without a fight. This HC threatening vendors is all a game, there is really nothing they can do legally, so we just need to stand out ground and we wont be going anywhere anytime soon!

    Don't be sorry, all news is appreciated, as many of us are fairly new to Vapeing. The more we know the better prepared we can be.

    They have no case since it's not legally regulated. If I was her, I'd just stop selling nic juices for a while until HC forget about me.

    The vendor still need to consult and pay for legal advice in which case $$$$$. That's the tactics that HC is using and for a small vendor, it will be difficult to fight. At the same time HC is just forcing e-cig to go underground. The pressure must be from the big Tobacco Companies. In Canada those big companies should fight against those cheap native indians cigarettes instead of point the fingers at the e-cigarettes vendors in general. I believe that all vendors should join forces and fight for this across all provinces.

    I don't see the relationship between this issue and the Canadian healthcare system.

    I'm sorely tempted to reply at greater length -- probably like many Canadians, I have a love/hate relationship with our healthcare system. But unlike most Canadians, I grew up in the US and have some first hand knowledge of both systems -- but this really isn't the appropriate place to debate this issue.

    No laws are being broken by the vendor so it is just a bluff by Heath Canada. The vendor is a fighter and HC will back down yet again.

    Canadian Vendors, keep up the good work! I'm rooting for and buying from you!
