The National Post Reports:
Nova Scotia became the first Canadian province Thursday to ban smoking in vehicles with children under the age of 19. The new legislation follows a similar, history-making law the Nova Scotia community of Wolfville passed in November.Ontario and British Columbia have also recently introduced similar bills to ban smoking in cars with children.
The new law will come into effect in January, will likely be police-enforced and involve a fine levied through a ticket system.
We will continue to keep you posted on developments.
