Given the cost of smoking to the health care system through complications, this is an effective preventative measure. Ever seen someone die of COPD?

Bullshit, if this were for health reasons they'd ban smoking altogether. In Ontario "cracking down" or "environmentalism" means increasing more Liberal tax revenue.

This is more about the control freaks in our society deciding what is best for you.

Nope. It's about improving health, reducing costs to the community and society at large and making for a better community. Being a control freak has nothing to do with it.

Some people actually buy into those bullshit excuses... or they parrot them themselves because it's ideologically inline with what they want.
