Vancouver bans smoking in parks, beaches.

VANCOUVER—Smoking cigarettes in the parks and beaches of Canada's third largest city is to be banned as of September 1, the Vancouver Park Board has decided.

The elected board voted Monday night to prohibit smoking in some 200 parks and along 18 kilometers (11 miles) of beaches, such as Vancouver's famed Stanley Park, citing opinion surveys that suggest enormous support for the measure. [Source]

This is good news for non-smokers like me. I wonder how Pinoys will react if the same rule will be implemented in Batangas beaches and resorts. :-)
