"I’m not sure if police and the hospital administration will approve, but I was thinking of buying one of those lovely big water pistols and always having it filled when I am gardening, and when anyone smokes nearby they will see an old, grey-haired lady coming at them fast, ready to soak them and their cigarette.

If you actually try shooting a smoker with a water gun, I hope dat smoker beats you up good. Cause a lowlife antismoker like you deserves it.
In 90 degree weather, I wouldn't mind getting a free splash from your gun as I smoke. LOL
Oh yeah. If you ever do splash a smoker with a water gun, you betta hope dat smoker isn't someone who has a REAL gun dat's loaded up on his body. ;)
Congratulations to the Elliot Lake Teens against Tobacco for their efforts and example of trying to help other human beings stay healthy, and to help save trees for the Earth.
St. Joseph’s Hospital horticultural society. On May 28, I was at the garden to get ready to put new soil, manure and peat moss down so that we can plant this week. However, first I found that I had to spend three hours, nonstop, just picking up hundreds of cigarette butts along the sidewalk, doorways and grass at the front of the hospital.are planted and cared for by volunteers from the
For over two years there have been many signs announcing ‘No smoking on this property’, in both French and English, along all pathways, flower beds, doorways and parking spots, etc. Because there is no smoking anywhere on hospital land, there are no ashtrays, yet some smokers just stand around smoking and dropping their butts.
At the front of the hospital we have 10 half-barrels for displays of flowers. These are obviously for flowers, but folks drop coffee cups and hundreds of cigarette butts in them and are, sadly, teaching their children to be dirty, dropping candy wrappers and lollipop sticks as well.
Some people even rip off their hospital identification paper bracelet and drop it in the flower pots. Don’t they realize it has their name on it?
If I ask offenders to tell me their name so that I can report them, they are obviously not going to give me their real name and address, and it would create very bad feelings. It is hard enough to find good, hard-working, wonderful volunteers, and they can’t be expected to cope with this dirty dilemma.
Is there going to be a tobacco enforcement officer in Elliot Lake? He is going to be extremely busy around some areas.
I agree with Councillor Al Collett that this is like a witch hunt.
I think I have an idea how I can help my volunteers and keep our hospital gardens and grounds cleaner.
