We all knew this was coming, but the patio smoking ban could arrive SOON.
The city had an online and phone survey about smoking on patios in Winnipeg, and the results showed 76% of people favoured a ban at restaurants with 58% approving the measure for bar patios.

If approved the ban would come into effect April 1st. This includes any device that produces second hand smoke on patios that serve food or drinks.
If owners of the establishments and smokers do not agree fines will be enforced.
Winnipeg’s community services committee will vote on the bylaw changes next week.
