Smoking ban in January, report says

May 5, 2005

The [Quebec] provincial government will ban cigarettes in bars, restaurants and school yards starting in January 2006, the Canadian Press has learned.

The Liberal government has decided to attack smoking as a major public health issue, eliminating tobacco use in public places and limiting access to smoking.

Protecting youth from the dangers of tobacco is a key part of the legislation that is expected to be tabled in the coming weeks by Health Minister Philippe Couillard.

Sales of cigarettes to minors will also be punished by stiff fines.
