I think it might even be illegal to show packs of tobacco in stores- I see them cover them up now.
I like the law because I don’t smoke.
But I bet it’ll start a lot of confrontation because as if cops are going to walk around with a measuring tapes and enforce it. And bar owners risk losing their license and a $2500 fine.
BUT, in the NIMBY spirit, I still want to reserve my right to smoke in Montreal where they have a beautiful culture of hot summers, wine, patios and the cigarette.
So no smoking in Vancouver but lets forget about this ridiculous ban in Montreal.
Vancouver anti-smoking city- what will it mean for you?
hookah bars? cigar lounges? patios? summer bar business? olympics (where the world is more or less pro-smoke)?
And will it really make you quit smoking?
