Canadian tennant allowed to smokeWednesday, July 11, 2007 at 11:29 | Posted in Canada, smoking | 1 Comment
Quebec’s rental board has issued a hair-raising ruling: Sandra-Ann Fowler is allowed to smoke. And of all the places she is allowed to smoke in the privacy of her own home in Ville-Émard area!
The CBC reports:
Fowler’s landlords, Olesia Koretski and Matthew Newland, tried to ban tobacco in the apartment by including a no-smoking clause in the application form used for the unit.
Fowler filled out the form but did not sign it and said there were no non-smoking clauses in her first lease, signed in 2006, and the 2007 renewal.
Ms Fowler may still face the smoking ban at next renewal of her lease.
The story does not tell whether the landlords would allow consumption of marijuana in the apartment. As I wrote yesterday, puffing grass is four time as common in Canada as in anywhere else in the industrialized countries.
