Bill 41 Tobacco and Vapor Products Control Act
Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Inuvik Twin Lakes, that Bill 41, Tobacco and Vapor Products Control Act, be read for the second time. This bill repeals the Tobacco Control Act and replaces it with a new act. This bill creates prohibitions and offences, including in respect of the sale, supply and display of tobacco products, vapour products, accessories or prescribed substances or products; imposes requirements in respect of the display of signs respecting the legal age to purchase such products, accessories or substances; imposes an automatic prohibition in respect of the sale or storage of such products, accessories or substances in a place in which at least two sales offences have been committed within a five-year period, and imposes requirements in respect of the display of signs respecting the automatic prohibition in the place; provides for the enforcement of the bill and any regulations made under it; authorizes the making of regulations; and consequentially amends the Tobacco Tax Act. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
