B.C.’s recreational boob-smoking ban is set to be overturned at the end of the month, as the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that there was no reasonable expectation of privacy in the public’s right to use a pipe and to smoke a hookah.
The court ruled last June that there is a constitutional right to smoke tobacco in public, and that the ban violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The province had argued that it is in the best interests of public health to ensure the health and safety of the public.
But the court disagreed, saying the ban “must be viewed in the context of the rights it protects.”
It also ruled that the provincial government could not compel people to stop smoking hookah pipes because of their legal right to do so.
B.c. has said that the new ban would be in place for five years.
But that does not mean the ban will be in force forever.
The ban, which is currently being challenged by three groups — two health groups and a local legal advocacy group — was announced in December 2017.
The legal group is arguing that the legislation is an overreach of police powers and that it was necessary to create a framework for regulation and enforcement.
A second group, called the Law Society of British Columbia, has also been challenging the ban, and has said the law violates the rights of people who do not wish to use hookahs.
“The law needs to be reformed,” said Sarah Fergus, the executive director of the law society, who is also a lawyer.
“People who are on the sidelines, or people who don’t smoke in public but are uncomfortable with the public use of a hookahs, can’t say they don’t want to use it.
The law should be reformed to make it clear that it’s not the law of the land, and to make clear that there’s no reason to ban people from having a hook-a-thon.”
The ban has already been in place in the province for five months, with many smokers turning to hookahs in public to escape the crowds of smoking smokers that have been in force in recent years.
It’s been banned in the capital, Vancouver, as well as some parts of B.o.B.’s backyard.
Vancouver is a popular hangout for smokers and the area around it has been known to host hookah clubs.
The number of people using hookahs has risen in recent months as a result of a boom in the city.
In January, the number of hookahs on the street tripled, with some users coming from the airport and elsewhere in B.ca.
Last year, the city reported that there were almost 5,000 hookah smokers in the area.
The new legislation, if it is upheld, will have an impact on many other parts of the province.
It will have a chilling effect on the use of hookah pipe smoking, said Fergus.
“It’s going to be a lot of people moving around the city, going out and doing it.”
