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
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
"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."
