I am not a smoker but I think this law is going beyond reasonable and today I see that the CRD is picking on marginalized persons.
These street people have nothing to begin with no bed to sleep in no home to lay on a couch watching TV and they visit Our Place homeless shelter for showers, socializing, 3 meals a day, medical and the list goes on an on.
They hang out on the boulevard where many of them smoke cigarettes.
Today I see that the CRD has erected their No Smoking Signs on both ends of the sidewalk on Pandora from Vancouver to Quadra.
I guess this is considered part of Harris Green and therefore technically a park.
The huge wide part of Harris Green from Vancouver Street to the Church on Chambers St has none of these signs.
I don't like the street people society in this town and all the BS that goes along with them and their actions but for F sakes why is the CRD focusing in on that one little part of the street in front of a homeless shelter to put these signs up.Are they planning on fining people who may smoke there...people who cant and wont pay fines levied???
The sad irony is that IV Injections and crack smoking take place there too but no signs prohibiting that or no signs saying its illegal to steal then strip bicycles on the grass
I guess you really don't need to have any common sense at all to work as a bureaucrat
