Sounds like a good idea to me. When kids are in the car the adults can hold off on smoking.

Those poor children are going to get awful cold having to walk. The politicians in Nova Scotia are absolutely despicable.

Kent, I don't suppose you ever thought that it was possible not to smoke in a car with kids in it!

Then why would he worry about it?! This only concerns cars with kids in them.

Well I doubt they'd intervene if people would use commone sense and pay attention to what doctors are telling them about their kid's health.

ROFL... Now, that gov't has it's toe in the door of private citizens, there is no stopping the monster. It has nothing to do with kids... but, it does have to do with tickets that they hope will be written....

I saw a report on this story on the television. They're only going to warn people for the first few months. The fine after that is $50. I doubt that they'll be rolling in money from this.

Don't be so sure... it is going to be an "easy" ticket. So, because the fine isn't that high, many won't fight it, and, just send in the check. This could end up another cash cow.

They'd make much more on speed traps if they were just into making money. Besides, I doubt many people smoke with young kids in the car these days anyway.

Annoying mouse, I don't suppose you ever thought that it was possible to smoke in a car with kids in it! You must have been hatched recently.

The good intentions of banning smoking in cars with kids is an unbeatable perfect achievement. The majority supporters sleep well believing they have accomplished a great and positive victory. Trying to tell people that Second Hand Tobacco Smoke is NOT a Statistically Signficiant Health Risk to others, including children, is like trying to say 'there is NO god - in a church or temple full of religious fanatics. What everyone refuses to consider is, when the last time was that any adult ever saw anything 'perfect' actually be what they needed or wanted to believe it to be. Answer is -'never'. Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153) said, "Hell is full of good intentions or desires", later morphed in to "The Road to Hell is paved with....."

We all know what these are meant to do, protect children. I don't think anyone is against that. But these laws that are being brought in(Ontario is considering one) won't be enforcable. The police can't keep up with all the idiot punks with guns, where are they going to find the time to stop people they think are smoking. Stopping every car with someone holding a cigarette won't work because you can't always see the kids in the car. Until a politician can stand up and state a true solution to this problem, it is a total waste of time trying to enact these laws.
