Earlier this year, an Angus Reid poll shows that almost double the number of Canadians (62 percent) now feel that vaping does more harm than good versus the same time last year (35 percent). The same study shows that 92 percent of parents with children under 19 years of age consider vaping harmful. In December, Health Canada took measures to restrict the advertising of vaping products aimed at curbing usage in young people.
Sixth Estate Spotlights are delivered in front of a live audience direct from the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and streamed on Facebook free for Canadians to watch. A limited number of tickets remain and there is no charge to attend in studio. For more information please and to register click here.
