Report to go to Toronto Board of Health
0 0

The Toronto Board of Health will be debating the idea of 'Waterpipe" smoking later this month.

A report written by the city's Medical Officer of health suggests that waterpipes, or hookah's, should be prohibited in all Toronto establishments.

The report suggests hookah's contravene the Smoke Free Ontario Act, make it difficult for vendors, and paraticipants to determine whether the product containes tobacco.

The report also says emerging research suggests even the herbal substances have an adverse affect on indoor air quality.

The Medical Officer of Health also wants to ask the Federal Health Minister to change the Tobacco Act, to include waterpipe tobacco products.

It goes to the Board, March 24th, and council on April 1st.
