Today Is The First day Of No Smoking In The Car With Kids

ONTARIO BANS SMOKING IN CARS WITH MINORS PRESENT

 Starting this morning, Ontario drivers will face fines of $250.00 if they are caught smoking in a vehicle containing people under the age of 18.
  Ontario is the second province in Canada to make the move to smoke free transportation for kids, Nova Scotia was the first.
 Peter Goodhand, CEO of the Ontario division of the Canadian Cancer Society says that “This law reinforces the important message to parents and caregivers that when you buckle up, butt out.”

    The big nanny state; I wonder who will enforce this ban.

    Kids will be expected to turn their parents in to the Tobacco Police for re-education. Word is that McGuinty is negotiating with Obama to rent Gitmo after the USA closes it. The plan is to use it as a re-education camp for defiant residents of Ontario that ignore bans. They’re going to bury the operating costs in the education budget.

    Hopefully they will consolidate the enforcement wings of the various bans to keep costs down. A move to unify the Light Bulb Police and Tobacco Police is being resisted by the respective unions but the anticipated ban on resisting McGuinty initiatives should take care of that. No comment yet from the Resisting McGuinty Initiatives Police. That may be due to the ban against publicly commenting on McGuinty bans.
