Downtown smokers — isn’t there a law against this?

April 12, 2010

I have been working downtown now for almost a month, and now that the weather is good and I want to go for a wander at lunch, I’m fed up with the smokers.

Outside every doorway, blocking the sidewalk, is a crowd of smokers puffing their cancer sticks, blowing the smelly smoke towards walkers-by like me.

I thought Vancouver passed a law against smoking within six feet of a doorway. But if such a law exists, it obviously isn’t being enforced anywhere near my office!

On the brighter side, today I biked downtown on my brand new hybrid commuter bike. I love my new bike!
