Weedless Wednesday encourages smokers to quit before it's too late

Today is Weedless Wednesday. To mark the occasion, Ontario is recognizing the latest achievements of its strategy for a Smoke-Free Ontario, including banning smoking on and around children’s playgrounds and publicly owned sports fields, banning the sale of tobacco on university and college campuses and surfaces and banning smoking on bar and restaurant patios.

If passed, new legislation would limit the use and sale of e-cigarettes, including banning the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. Despite progress in curbing the use of tobacco products, 13,000 Ontarians still die each year as a result of tobacco-related diseases.
