To quote an older fellow I exchanged a few words with the other day while shivering outside having a cigarette, smokers are treated as "second class citizens" - More draconian laws on the way.
The dangers of second-hand smoke are so great there should be a ban on lighting up in cars carrying children, Ontario doctors said yesterday, bringing an immediate outcry from critics who labelled it another attack on personal freedoms. The Ontario Medical Association said children's exposure to smoke must be curtailed, arguing that their delicate respiratory systems make them especially susceptible to pulmonary disease and cancer.
I can't wait!!! We are doomed if these people have their way.
For those of you who were not reading closely enough, note that they want to make the fact that someone smokes a factor in child custody decisions. Never mind the moral merits of the individuals involved - our freedoms are being disgustingly trodden upon by these shameful slime. Your right to determine what constitutes appropriate moral behaviour is no longer your responsibility -- it will now be dictated by the government. WELL BACK RIGHT OFF GOVERNMENT!!
