Surrey bans e-cigarettes in public spaces
Vapourizers will now be treated just like cigarettes in Surrey
Surrey City Council has banned electronic cigarettes in all the same places that you're not allowed to smoke regular cigarettes.
The city now also requires vapers to stay at least 7.5 metres away from bus stops or transit shelters when they light up.
"I know that there's been a number of complaints, particularly as it relates to using vapours and using cigarettes and bus shelters," said Councillor Tom Gill.
"I know that's been a huge problem."
Council changed the bylaw at Monday's meeting.
Earlier this year, the province introduced similar legislation to ban vapourizers from restaurants, workplaces and other public spaces.
