Makes one wonder who at health canada write those letters and send it, knowing full well it's false and misleading. I mean, there' got to be a regular employee writing it and truthfully thinking what it contain is the truth.
The Thruth about HEALTH CANADA
While no actual 'proof' of coercion is posted, I find it curious that there doesn't seem to be any action by Health Canada to take the page down. I'd place a huge bet on Health Canada knowing about that page.
Rob Ford would never let these shenanigans happen
Smoke Free since Sept. 22nd 2013 ... Keep Calm & Vape On
Greetings; What gets me steamed up about this issue is that while HC is going after E-Cig vendors, it appears to be totally inactive when it comes to a far more clear & present danger, namely big tobacco marketing practices aimed at making cigarettes popular among youths. Here's two links related to this issue, the second of which is specific to Canada:
Warning to Parents: How Big Tobacco Targets Kids Today - Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids
Teens & smoking : Canadian Lung Association
Vaping is about adults choosing an alternative to tobacco. If maximizing health and safety among Canadians were really the issues driving HC, then these sleazy youth-directed marketed practices is what should be getting attention.
Devices: Gus Telescopic, Provari Mini, KFL+, Siam Cobra, AC9, some other stuff
Not sure I agree with all of that regarding tobacco companies targeting kids.
It's got to be the same thing in the rest of Canada but here in Quebec, tobacco company do not advertise in convenience store anymore, smoking products are hidden behind the cashier in shelves that are closed all the time, there's absolutely no logo, stickers, brand name that can be seen, it's been like that for a few years now.
There's no more publicity on TV, in the radio, newspapers it's also against the law and no more publicity in sports event, like you used to see tobacco brands on formula 1 racing car. You saw the latest games? There's now a warning with "Tobacco reference". And it's now quite rare to see people smoke in movies, it's really not like it was like 20-30 years ago where all the actors were smoking in every scene lol
There's not much they can do now in publicity in Canada, the only thing I see are no smoking signs
Two peas in a pod.

HC should do some homework.
