Prince George Drafts Outdoor Smoke and Vape-free Bylaw
The City of Prince George is taking action on improving the health of their citizens by looking at tobacco use in the city. Earlier this year the City hosted a smoke-free 2015 Canada Winter Games. They initially created a proclamation that all official venues used for the 2015 Canada Winter Games would be smoke-free in partnership between Northern Health, the 2015 Canada Winter Games, and the City of Prince George.
The City has now proposed a draft bylaw to restrict smoking and vaping in a number of public places in the city. Citizens are invited to learn more and provide feedback through neighbourhood conversations in a series of community engagement events called ‘Talktober’ throughout October. Learn more here.
