Smoke ban comes under fire for allowing smoking outside
Tom Laprade Thunder Bay, Canada
The idea of banning smoking outside means the "antis" are trying to quarantine/isolate the smoker. It is not about health - and it never was about health. It is all about denormalising smoking. Have no fear - alcohol is on the back-burner of the World Health Organisation. Non-smokers had better step up to the plate and defend smokers and the hospitality industry - you could be next.

As the saying goes: "I did not speak, but when they came for me, there was no one to speak". The prospect of thousands of non-smoking venues, empty and closed is very sad. Even the non-smokers who say: "I'll go to the pub more" won't - because it will be shut. Sad.

Just a shame the same degree of demonisation is not shown by this Government and rabid "antis" towards criminals and all the other elements that impinge on my right to walk the streets safely.
