WE ASKED WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE NEW BAN ON SMOK­ING IN OUT­DOOR DIN­ING AR­EAS I like eat­ing out­doors. Smok­ers make me retch. Smok­ers used to smoke in cars with the win­dows up and kids in the back seat. If you think non-smok­ers have to put up with your filthy habit maybe you should watch while I pick my nose and eat it. Be­cause that’s how non-smok­ers see your habit. CRAIG RICH­MOND Smok­ing any­where near where food or drinks are be­ing con­sumed is dis­gust­ing. So it should be banned. JANELLE NI­CHOLLS This is so wrong. I’m a smoker; we pay for our smokes and we pay the taxes on them the gov­ern­ment is happy rak­ing in. It’s come to the point you just can’t smoke any­where now – football sta­di­ums, hos­pi­tal grounds, schools, play­ground ar­eas... STEVE KEARNS If the gov­ern­ment was se­ri­ous about peo­ple smok­ing they would ban it en­tirely, but they won’t be­cause it brings in $7 bil­lion in tax per year. We should have the right to a des­ig­nated smok­ing sec­tion. WAYNE NEOH
