In Canada, most places and buildings you go to, you will see the "No Smoking" sign placed inside the buildings. Places such as Malls, Hospitals, Schools, Offices, Plazas, Supermarkets are all places where smoking inside is prohibited but still allowed if done outside within 10 metres of the buildings. If the Government is so keen in discouraging people from smoking, then why is the Government allowing the Cigarettes company to manufacture them and sell them.
Smoking had been known to cause a lot of health problems in smokers and every year the Government spent millions of dollars in treating smokers with health problems. This without doubt will cost money which could have been used to improve the lives of other people who needed the money most, such as the poor people and the unemployed ones.
