FROM THE TIME I get off the bus at the University of Ottawa to the time I get into the building, I am going to inhale at least a carton of cigarettes into my lungs from the many smokers on campus. There is no known safe level of second-hand smoke, yet I am forced to breathe in this cancer-causing garbage into my body if I want a degree from this university. Enough is enough! A person’s right to blow smoke ends where my nose begins. I propose a total ban on all smoking on campus so we can finally make the U of O a real smoke-free environment.
