Wider smoking ban a no-go for Greater Victoria
Capital Regional District directors have rejected a proposal to ban smoking in parks, public squares and on beaches in a tight 12-11 vote.
Directors who opposed the motion, brought forward May 8, argued the ban would be too difficult to enforce and was too wide-ranging.
Duncan, Nanaimo and Vancouver already have such public smoking bans in place.
