Minister of Health Opposes Sale of Tobacco-Flavoured Products to BC Minors

June 2014

In this June 2014 letter, the executive director of BC’s Tobacco Control Branch, Mark Herman, responded to First Call’s letter of May 2014 to Premier Clark and Minister of Health Terry Lake calling for a ban on the sale of flavoured tobacco products. Herman advised that Minister Lake is working with the federal government to regulate the sale of e-cigarettes and flavoured tobacco to minors in BC. In the absence of a federal strategy, the minister will move to introduce legislation to regulate such sales.
