Why support a ban on smoking in parks and playgrounds?

  • There is no safe level of second-hand smoke, not even outdoors
  • Reducing children and youth’s exposure to smoking decreases the likelihood of them starting to smoke
  • Cigarette butts contain toxic chemicals and can be dangerous if ingested by children or animals
  • Smoke-free spaces help people who smoke to quit
  • Protecting the environment – cigarette filters can take up to 15 years to break-down

What You Can Do

  • Sign the petition to show your support for smoke-free parks, playgrounds and playing fields in Norfolk County.
  • Spread the word! Talk to your family and friends about the issue and ask them to support smoke-free parks and playgrounds, too.
  • If you live in Norfolk County, tell us what you think. Please take a few minutes to complete the online survey and you will be entered into a draw for one of three $50 gift certificates.
