Are E-Cigarettes allowed in restaurants in the province?

I'm not a smoker, and was wondering what was the state of the new e-cigs in regards to the no-smoking laws in QC.

Are E-Cigarettes allowed in restaurants in the province?

    1. Here's what the MSSS has to say:

      "De plus, tant et aussi longtemps qu’il n’aura pas de certitude quant à la composition et la forme des produits inhalés et expirés, le directeur national de santé publique du Québec invite la population à les considérer comme des produits du tabac. Ainsi, il serait souhaitable pour les usagers qu’ils ne les consomment pas dans les lieux visés par la Loi sur le tabac. Le directeur national de santé publique du Québec invite aussi les exploitants à ne pas en tolérer l’usage dans leur établissement."

      1. I have seen people use them in the metro. I think they are in a grey area legally for now.

        1. Ive seen people use them in the library.. it is very distracting because some have a sweet smelling visible vapor. If i was in a bar or restaurant I wouldnt care though.

            I would probably be annoyed at a bar or restaurant. I don't think I would enjoy the smell of synthetic fruit during a meal.

          2. I hope not.
