Looks like smokers will have to butt out in St. Catharines parks
The city of St. Catharines is looking to ban smoking in all city parks and sports fields.
Council will discuss a report on the issue from city solicitor Chris Cooper at its next meeting October 15th.
Cooper's report recommends a fine of 125 dollars for people caught lighting up.
But Cooper also notes the region is considering a Niagara wide ban as well.
He suggests St. Catharines councillors wait to see what the region does before they move to impose a ban.
