pei property for sale: Banning the butt: Global anti-smoking efforts - 02/08/08 07:35 AM
Day by day, smoking is becoming a thing of the past in Canada. The number of smokers declines every year, going hand in hand with an increase in efforts by government and health activists to tighten up restrictions on the sale and use of tobacco. Smoking has been banned from most offices for some time, but the bans are now extending to bars, restaurants and other public places. Some cities have banned smoking outright, shutting down separate smoking rooms altogether. The point is stop smoking people.....Live longer, stop wasting money....and 1000 other reasons...
