Terrasses exempt from smoking ban

An article from today's Gazette notes:

Even terrasses with canvas walls that are kept open are deemed illegal smoking zones. Ditto Tempo-style awnings at the entrances to buildings.

But terrasses with tables and parasols are OK for smoking.

And smokers may slip out the door for a puff, because the nine-metre no-smoking limit applies only to such public buildings as schools, hospitals, clinics, daycares and other facilities where minors are present.

If I have to walk though a cloud of smoke to get to a retaurant, you can be sure that I won't bother.
