Toronto board of health asks province for e-cigarette ban
Ban use of e-cigarettes indoors and by minors, UN urges
Cigarette smoking is currently banned in enclosed public places and all enclosed workplaces — restrictions that will be expanded Jan. 1 to include all restaurant and bar patios as well as at playgrounds and publicly owned sports fields.
E-cigarettes don’t contain tobacco and produce vapour instead of smoke, which proponents say helps smokers kick their habit.
In August, Premier Kathleen Wynne said her government would look into the issue but that she wouldn’t rush into a decision on whether to ban electronic cigarettes in areas where smoking is already off-limits.
