NSRA in Favour of Bill 69: An Act to Protect Children from Second-hand Tobacco Smoke in Motor Vehicles

The Non-Smokers’ Rights Association (NSRA) was established 32 years ago to seek remedies for the risks to health caused by second-hand smoke (SHS). Given this historic involvement in the evolution of legislation to protect the health of non-smokers, especially children, our association is pleased to fully support Bill 69—An Act to protect children from second-hand tobacco smoke in motor vehicles by amending the Smoke-Free Ontario Act. Bill 69 has a duel purpose: not only will it protect Ontario’s most vulnerable citizens from the known health hazards of exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS) in motor vehicles, but it will also serve as a cost-effective and on-going public education tool.
