The open letter written by Darryl Tempest, the Canadian Vaping Association’s executive director addressed some of the federal government’s critiques on the continued attacks and quarrels of vaping in Canada. The disagreements have continued and are not likely to stop soon.
The director expressed their views on the refusal to adopt the e-cigarettes as it is considered as a harm reduction tool. Like other health centers, addiction and the pandemic crisis are in the frontline and require instant address compared to vaping issues.
In his letter, Tempest said that the government needs to take the e-cigarette as a harm reduction device in the struggle against smoking-related disorders. The open letter came after some states, such as Nova Scotia and Quebec and embraced the vape flavor bans.
Tempest also recognized that there is a necessity to address the issue on teen vaping. He said that the industry is against underage use and they are willing to take drastic steps to put a stop to it. He also urged the government to provide efforts in educating children about smoking and vaping.
