Legislation passed last week in California to ban smoking in cars when a child is present, and the Ontario Medical Association took notice. Now, they are . (And they're not afraid to use awful puns in .)
Based on what Ontario health minister George Smitherman , the doctors' prayers may just be answered:
You've suggested the smoking ban should be extended into people's homes. Doesn't that strike you as a little Big Brother-ish? I don't think we all want to live in a place where every third person is a bylaw enforcement officer, but we have to work hard to find a balance there. When I pull up beside a car — and it doesn't happen often, but I am observant — and see someone is smoking with a kid in the car, I'm inclined to draw awareness.
You mean you yell at them to butt out? If I can get their attention, yeah.
