I like to smoke indoors. I don't care for the rules much and I do pay for my ambivalence in many ways.
I'm Ontario, we can't smoke at work, or anywhere. So I do.
I smoke everywhere, in the mall, at the store and there isn't a goddamn thing anyone is gonna do about it.
The store could call the cops, or refuse service to me (which is why I recommend smoking after purchasing), but that would cost time and money.
The cops hate being called out for "cigarette smoking" and will likely think it some sort of prank is going on... if they show at all.
Continue to smoke, anywhere you want. You will not be legally punished.
The police know it takes five minutes to smoke a cigarette and twenty for them to dispatch. The illogic makes for an unwillingness to waste time or
Smoke or don't smoke, just know that there ain't a goddamn thing anyone can do about stopping you unless you let them.
The signs can't physically stop you from smoking, if anyone tries to stop you it is assault, if they take your cigarette, it is theft, and if you are
forced outside to light up... it is moral cowardice.
I say take your life in our own hands and light up a smoke... wherever you want to. No one can stop you. You are a Citizen of The Republic.
P.S. Don't smoke near citizens who don't like it, make them leave first.
