Smoke-free Places Act, New Brunswick

It prohibits smoking in indoor workplaces and enclosed public places, including
bingo halls, bowling alleys, casinos, restaurants, bars, and outdoor eating and
drinking areas within restaurants and bars.

Ban on smoking in vehicles with children comes into effect in January 2010.

Motorists are being reminded that a provincial ban on smoking in motor vehicles when children are
present comes into effect Jan. 1, 2010. "The prohibition of smoking in cars when children are in car
will ensure more protection for young people from the health risks associated with second-hand smoke,"
said Health Minister Mary Schryer. "This initiative is a step forward to protect the public from
second-hand smoke and to reduce the use of tobacco products."

The Smoke-free Places Act prohibits smoking in a motor vehicle when a person younger than 16 is present.
Similar legislation exists in Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia and the Yukon, and is being put in force
in Manitoba and Prince Edward Island. Research has shown that the effects of second-hand smoke are
experienced more intensely by children than adults because of their frequent respiratory rates. In sealed,
enclosed spaces such as cars, tobacco-smoke may reach levels 23 times higher than in a house.
"This legislation will go a long way in protecting New Brunswick children from the dangers of second hand
smoke, said Anne McTiernan-Gamble, the executive director of the Canadian Cancer Society.

"Reducing exposure to tobacco is critical to ensuring the best possible health outcomes for our children
now and in the future. "Provincial drivers are reminded that failure to comply with the legislation is
a punishable offence, and offending drivers may face fines of $140-$570. Other initiatives aimed at
decreasing and recouping costs associated with tobacco use in New Brunswick have included a ban on
tobacco displays and point-of-sale tobacco advertising as well as the launch of a lawsuit against tobacco

"This ban is also another step in the de-normalization of tobacco products, which will reduce how often children
see tobacco being used, said Schryer. "It is another effort in not only reducing children's exposure to second-hand
smoke but also in trying to prevent children from beginning to use tobacco products. It will encourage
the residents of New Brunswick to lead a healthier lifestyle that does not include tobacco."
