Bill 40 Smoking Control and Reduction Act
Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Inuvik Twin Lakes that Bill 40, Smoking Control and Reduction Act, be read for the second time. This bill repeals the Cannabis Smoking Control Act and replaces it with a new act. It also replaces provisions of the Tobacco Control Act. This bill creates prohibitions and offences, including in respect of smoking in a public place and in a motor vehicle while another person who is a minor is present in the motor vehicle; imposes requirements in respect of the display of signs, including signs respecting the health risks associated with smoking; provides for the enforcement of the bill and any regulations made under it; authorizes the making of regulations; and consequentially amends the Cannabis Products Act. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
