    except those that realize that if cigarette taxes disappear, general taxes will be raised amongst the general population (hellooooooooo non smokers) to make the shortfall.

    No one votes to raise THEIR OWN taxes, but they'll sure as hell vote to tax the ex-smokers at the same rate they nailed them as smokers if it keeps their own tax rate down.

    Welcome to NIMBY taxation.

    This is probably the best article I have seen on vaping. The first sentence makes their prime concern clear. "The Manitoba government has no immediate plans to treat electronic cigarettes like tobacco despite seeing $9.3 million less in tobacco taxes this year than earlier budgeted." There is no mention of health whatsoever. They admit that vaping is used to quit smoking. They admit that tax revenue is the issue. Good for Manitoba! Their honesty is appreciated.

    From day 1 as a smoker, all I ever heard was endless complaints, how i'm stinking up people's air, how smokers smell so bad. How I should have to go walk X feet away from this and that to have a smoke and how I deserve to be taxed out the ass because of the strain I would be putting on the healthcare system as a smoker plus the endless whining and moaning from family, doctors etc. Now that i've kicked that habit regular joe wants to tax this too? What does this has to do with goverment? If I don't smoke my way into an early grave with a long hospital bill why should I have to pay as If I was? I realize i'm in Alberta but all it takes is one Province to get the ball rollin
