Kuki, surely with all the kerfuffle in Calgary about the smoking Bylaw, you don't expect local governments to take a reasonable approach on this subject! I can't remember how it affects your bar as I have tuned out the subject. As a reformed smoker (and you can't get more self-righteous than us ex-smokers) I now prefer a non-smoking atmosphere. As long as it is a legal substance, however, I think the anti-tobacco
gestapo have gone too far. Be allowed to advertise your establishment as smoking or non-smoking and the market will soon sort out if you have made the right choice. This is a no win situation for Carnival but at least they are addressing it and trying to come to a reasonable compromise.
