I applaud the Gauntlet's position on anti-smoking bylaws. Non-smokers should not be subjected to second-hand smoke with its carcinogenic, asthma-inducing [qualities], and other adverse effects on health.

I would like to hear more about your opinion on air pollution in Calgary that is the result of heavy automobile use. In my view, it has the sameĀ­--if not worse--negative consequences as second-hand smoke.
