Toronto City Council has voted to ban e-cigarettes from all city workspaces.

Council passed the motion by a vote of 36-2 Monday near the start of its final meeting of the term, expected to be a marathon session that could last days.

Mayor Rob Ford and Councillor Josh Matlow voted against the motion.

Toronto Public Health raised concerns about e-cigarettes because they contain nicotine and could encourage young people to take up the habit.

The city also passed a motion to ask the province to place restrictions on e-cigarettes that are similar to those already in place for regular cigarettes.

    Typical of their incompetence. Public Health bases their information on limited to no science, not thinking (as usual) of the bigger picture, only as far as the end of their noses.

    I would suggest that the idiots in public health and their advocates at city hall could encourage young people to take up the habit of being idiots themselves, and therefore should be banned.

    I would also suggest that our former premier McGuinty, who allowed an innocent person to be almost beaten to death, and who "stole" over $ 1 Billion, should have been banned as it would encourage young people to steal and to beat innocent people.

    Welcome to the race to the bottom of the barrel!
