If you toss a cigarette from your vehicle, be prepared to pay a heavy price, no butts about it.
West Shore RCMP Const. Alex Berube said an officer spotted a driver tossing a butt from his car right outside the detachment on Veterans Parkway Thursday. The vehicle was stopped and the driver indicated he wasn’t aware of the heightened concerns because of forest fires in the province.

Berube said after a short educational discussion, the driver was issued a $575 fine under the BC Wildlife Act.
