In 2005 the City of Saskatoon adopted a bylaw to ban smoking on all outdoor patios of restaurants and bars. Would you support such a bylaw in Weyburn?
NO YES YES NO NO UNDECIDED
COMMENTS: Although I lost my father to lung cancer and would like to see smoking banned totally I believe this is an issue of consumer choice and it is unfair to implement on a location by location basis. Such a ban needs to be implemented on at least a provincial and preferably a federal basis to make it fair to all businesses. Until then consumers can make a conscious choice to support or not support those who allow smoking on their outdoor decks. Staff should also have a "protected" choice on this.


Would you support a bylaw banning smoking in other outdoor public places including the following?
Children’s playgrounds YES YES NO NO NO UNDECIDED
Sports fields
(e.g. soccer pitches, baseball diamonds, etc)
YES YES NO NO NO UNDECIDED
Fixed seating or bleachers
(e.g. stadiums)
YES YES NO NO NO UNDECIDED
On municipal property used for public gatherings
(e.g. festivals, concerts, exhibition grounds)
YES YES NO NO NO UNDECIDED


Do you support a city bylaw that would ban the use of pesticides for cosmetic purposes on all city and private property?
YES YES NO NO NO UNDECIDED
COMMENTS: Would have no problem on City property at all but I do think our Parks committee had enquired on this in the past and had received a legal opinion that this type of bylaw would not be enforceable on private property? If it is legally workable I would support it and again would have no issue with mandating this for City property.
