Confirmed victory

Advance smoke-free parks and playgrounds in the CRD

This petition made change with 146 supporters!

Thankfully the CRD Planning, Transportation & Protective Services Committee voted in favour of smoke-free parks and playgrounds, but the fight is far from over.  On Wednesday October 9th the entire CRD board representing 13 municipalities and 3 electoral areas will vote on whether or not to move the recommendations forward.  The proposal to ban smoking in parks and playgrounds was voted down by the CRD board a few months back, so we need all the help we can get!  Please note your petition signature may be required on multiple occasions in order to keep the pressure on. 

Over 20 municipalities have banned smoking in parks and playgrounds.  Smoke-free public places protect people from second-hand smoke, provide healthy role modelling for children and youth, and encourage people to quit or cut back.

Please support the health and wellbeing of CRD residents by signing this petition and by passing this on to your friends and family.
