ST. JANVIER, QC, Jan. 18, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Sherwin Edwards, Founder, President and CEO of Vap Select will join a cross section of experts who will discuss the merits of vaping as an alternative to cigarette smoke, to understand if vaping is really an option as a harm-reduction and life-saving alternative to tobacco products. The panel is organized by the Sixth Estate and will be moderated by Susan Delacourt.
Event: If Quitting Is Not An Option ... Is Vaping?
When: January 23, 2018
Where: Ottawa Marriott Hotel, 100 Kent Street
Program begins at 12:00 p.m. and finishes at 1:00 p.m.
Sherwin has taken a stand against the federal government's Bill S-5: An Act to amend the Tobacco Act and the Non-smokers' Health Act and to make consequential amendments to other Acts. His position is that Bill S-5 should not include vaping products by classifying them on the same shelf as tobacco products. He sponsored E-1237, an online e-petition, which calls for the suspension of Bill S-5 and for a distinction between tobacco and vaping products. The petition gathered 10,251 signatures while it remained online until the December 23, 2017 closing, making it one of the most successful online petitions submitted to the Canadian Parliament. Only 500 signatures are required for a petition to be read in the House of Commons. The petition gathered signatures from across Canada.
Sherwin is available for media interviews following the Sixth Estate panel discussion.
