Ontario is further tightening the screws on outdoor smokers.

And the province is beefing-up its anti-smoking rules – just in time for New Years resolutions.

As of January first the province will ban smoking on all restaurant and bar patios – and extend that ban to children’s playgrounds and publicly-owned sports fields.

The Wynne Liberal government is also amending existing regulations – to make it more difficult for young people to buy tobacco.

The government is also planning to re-introduce legislation that would extend a prohibition on sales of candy-and-fruit flavoured tobacco products to youth.

Ontario wants a total sales ban on those products.

The changes to the Smoke Free Ontario Act will replace a patchwork of municipal regulations that are currently on the books across the province.
