It's my understanding the province is making the move to include these under the Smoke Free Ontario Act

Aside from that, these should be banned wherever "real" buttsucking is banned because they cloud the waters and make enforcement (what little there is) more difficult.

Plus, anything that cuts into the profits of the murderous tobacco companies is a good thing.

I had a discussion with Transit Officers on this issue last week. I was told that they will issue a fine for e-cigarette use on trains.

I have to say that, I was a cigarette smoker for close to 30 years. I have tried numerous times to quit. I have done everything. Nicotine patch, Champax, Nicotine gum, you name it. It wasn't until, I found and tried the e-cigarette or in my case vaping. I have cut out the nicotine over months and only use it once and awhile. To me it has given me back so much. No more cough, I can do more, and the smell is completely gone. However, When I am out in public such as the taking the train. I would never use it.

Deepfish, Your quoted article doesnt do much to defend your position here.

the only harmful byproduct was nicotene. compared to actual cigarette smoke the article actually defends teh use of Ecigarrettes as better than tobacco.

A Fine is not sufficient. He/She should be escorted off the train.

From afar to a person who smokes actual cigarettes this looks like cigarette smoke I am sure, so then they think they can do it. Same goes for if someone is doing this on a platform. I hate real and fake cigs being smoked anywhere they are prohibited.

Dude on the Barrie Line, saunters along the EG platform puffing on one of these things. Still smells, no matter what they say is in the vapour (and I don't for one minute believe it's only water vapour). How 'bout I smoke a turd stick, is that legal? I guess the issue is not the smell, but the effect the vapour has on the health of you/others.

A woman on the TTC was attempting covertly to puff on an e-cigarette. It didn't exactly smell like regular tobacco smoke, but it most definitely did smell pretty funky. She looked around furtively before each puff and then tucked it away after.

I looked right at her and said, "Would you mind not doing that on the train?" She glared back and said, "Excuse me, but it's an e-cigarette, not a regular cigarette. It's allowed."

My question is this. If she truly believed the law and the right were on her side, why the need to be so furtive with each puff and to conceal it afterward? Why worry about being seen if it's "allowed"?
