Tough smoking rules passed

As of April 8, people are no longer allowed to smoke within 10 metres of any University building.

The Board of Governors passed a strict new smoking policy at its April 8 meeting (see full story on the policy in the March 4 OCN).

The new regulations strengthen the provisions of the University’s existing smoking rules, which have been in effect since 1991. Officials say the intent is to conform with tougher new regulations passed recently by the province and city.

The new U of S policy states: “Smoking is prohibited in all University buildings, parts of buildings, enclosed spaces, leased spaces, University owned or leased vehicles and outdoor seating areas that are part of a restaurant or licensed facility. Smoking is also prohibited at Griffiths Stadium except in designated areas. Smoking is prohibited within a 10-metre perimeter of any University building or ventilation air intake and other outdoor areas where posted. This policy applies to all University employees, students and visitors.”
