Total smoking ban at uWinnipeg

April 2, 2007

Starting today, the University of Winnipeg is entirely smoke-free.  Smoking has been banned everywhere on campus -- including outside.  The expansion of the campus smoking ban, to include the great outdoors, came in response to complaints by staff and students who were forced to walk through a thicket of smoke and smokers to enter campus buildings.  A spokesperson at the university says the change is a nod to the non-smoking majority at uWinn.  Dalhousie was the first Canadian campus to go completely smoke-free, followed by the Bannatyne campus of uManitoba.  CBC
