61. A prohibition from selling tobacco at a retail outlet, imposed pursuant to section 59, shall take effect on the lapse of 15 days from the time when a notice of suspension is served by the Minister of Revenue under section 17.9.1 of the Act respecting the Ministère du Revenu (chapter M‐31).
An operator of a tobacco retail outlet who is prohibited from selling tobacco pursuant to section 59 must remove all tobacco on display in the business and all tobacco advertising for the duration of the prohibition, failing which the Minister may have the tobacco or advertising removed at the operator’s expense. In such a case, once the prohibition expires, the operator of the tobacco retail outlet may, after paying storage charges, recover the tobacco or advertising at the place designated by the Minister. If the operator does not recover the tobacco or advertising within 60 days after the prohibition expires, the Minister may dispose of it as the Minister wishes and claim expenses from the operator.
