0 0

The province will be studying the health effects of e-cigarettes as Toronto Public Health debates whether or not to ban them.

Health Minister Eric Hoskins says his staff will also see what role the province can play moving forward, as well as how e-cigarettes help people to quit smoking.

A report to be presented to the Toronto Board of Health recommended the city bans e-cigarettes. However, that is only if the province doesn't put in place a ban first.

Hoskins says he wants the federal government to regulate e-cigarettes nationally. He points to classifying them as a drug or tobacco product.
