Last July, I was passing through Churchill Square during "movie in the square night" I paused to watch for a while. I saw three young girls and their father enjoying the show. Next to them sat a couple of guys, who had decided to light up some cigarettes. The father asked the men to stop smoking, and they declined. He asked them to move, and they again declined. So he and the little girls packed up and moved. Something sparked in my brain at that moment, when I realized that Churchill Square wasn’t as welcoming as it should be for all Edmontonians. And that the current rules put on the onus on non smokers to move away from smokers, especially during programmed events. This had to change.
