Montreal Officially Bans Smoking Cigarettes On Terrasses
It was bound to happen.
The Quebec government has officially strenghtened up the rules on smoking vapes and cigarettes in Quebec.
The law goes further and bans any kind of smoking in a vehicule with someone under 16 years old.
The amount for fines has already increased in all situations.
From the Montreal Gazette: “Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in Quebec and is responsible for a third of cancers,” Suzanne Dubois, executive director of the CCS in Quebec, said in a statement. “Anti-tobacco legislation is a primary tool in the fight against cancer. No other prevention measure can save as many lives. With An Act to bolster tobacco control, the Couillard government is striking hard.”
