Sechelt considers smoking bylaws

A request was heard from the Canadian Cancer Society and Vancouver Coastal Health on June 4, at the District of Sechelt regular council meeting, for a more stringent bylaw in Sechelt relating to smoking in public places. Such venues of concern include parks, trails, beaches, and includes properties where the public can gather, like stores, restaurants, theatres, etc. Smoking is already restricted by Provincial regulations in and around entrances to public buildings. Council resolved to have staff look into what is being done in other communities and what the views of Sechelt residents are regarding further restrictions on smoking. As part of that review, July’s District Dialogue question is “Do you support increasing restrictions on smoking in public places in Sechelt?”

Sechelt municipality asked for your opinion to, “help Council make a decision that is right for the community.”

E-mail DistrictDialogue@ Sechelt.ca to weigh in on this question or mail to post office address: 2nd Floor, 5797 Cowrie Street, PO Box 129, Sechelt, B.C. V0N 3A0
