Re. “Keep your butts out of play areas: West” (The Tri-City News, Sept. 29).
Port Coquitlam city Coun. Brad West wants to ban smoking in playgrounds and parks, and is saying that kids and other park users shouldn’t be exposed to second-hand smoke.
I don’t think it’s fair to say that, as a smoker, I am not allowed to utilize public parks. I pay for them like others. Eventually, everyone will come into contact with smoke, so why ban it from playgrounds and parks, and limit our rights as smokers.
