Lake Simcoe town of Georgina ponders outdoor smoking ban, vote late this month

GEORGINA, Ont. - The Lake Simcoe town of Georgina is a step closer to banning smoking at a number of outdoor locations.

Council has approved a report calling for a smoking ban for the town's beaches, parks and trails.

Mayor Robert Grossi says sometimes you have to push the bar.

If it passes later this month, the bylaw would cover much of the community's outdoor property. (CHAY)
