The City of Prince George is taking action on improving the health of their citizens by looking at tobacco use in the city. Earlier this year the City hosted a smoke-free 2015 Canada Winter Games. They initially created a proclamation that all official venues used for the 2015 Canada Winter Games would be smoke-free in partnership between Northern Health, the 2015 Canada Winter Games, and the City of Prince George.
The City has now proposed a draft bylaw to restrict smoking and vaping in a number of public places in the city. Citizens are invited to learn more and provide feedback through neighbourhood conversations in a series of community engagement events called ‘Talktober’ throughout October. Learn more here.
