Ba­con smok­ing in public ar­eas banned

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Wors­en­ing air pol­lu­tion has prompted the gov­ern­ments of two cities in Sichuan prov­ince to ban ba­con smok­ing, and of­fi­cials are be­ing sent to ur­ban ar­eas to en­force the or­der.

It is a time-hon­ored cus­tom for peo­ple in Sichuan to eat ba­con dur­ing Spring Fes­ti­val, which falls on Feb 19 this year. But many res­i­dents had com­plained about the un­pleas­ant smell pro­duced in public spa­ces by ba­con smok­ing, and they asked that it be banned

It has been banned in Dazhou, the east­ern­most city in Sichuan, and the neigh­bor­ing city of Bazhong. (Photo 1)
