This piece by Thomas Laprade (Canada) published by Allvoices.com says it exactly like it is, and needs no further comment.
Here is a teaser:
"The bandwagon of local smoking bans now steamrolling across the nation – from sea to sea – has nothing to do with protecting people from the supposed threat of ‘second-hand’ smoke.
Indeed, the bans themselves are symptoms of a far more grievous threat; a cancer that has been spreading for decades and has now metastasized throughout the body politic, spreading even to the tiniest organs of local government. This cancer is the only real hazard involved – the cancer of unlimited government power."
