Smoking in Nova-Scotia Soon illegal !

Smoking in Nova-Scotia, in a vehicle in the presence of people under 19, will soon be  illegal *! 

1 Section 5 of Chapter 12 of the Acts of 2002, the Smoke-free Places Act, as amended by Chapter 59 of the Acts of 2005, is further amended by adding immediately after subsection (2) the following subsection:

    (2A) No person shall smoke in a motor vehicle when any person under the age of nineteen years is present in the vehicle regardless of whether any window, sunroof, cartop, door or other feature of the vehicle is open

*This Act comes into force on such day as the Governor in Council orders and declares by proclamation.
 Bangor, Maine, passed a similar law last year. I guess Nova-Scotia legislators where inspired. As of January 1st, 2008, dito for crazy California:
