    I actually live in Ontario and I think that is awesome. Granted for truckers you may be the only one that is in the truck, but that is where you work...so tough titty.
    If there's one thing I hate, if I have to take a cab somewhere, the last thing I want to do is sit in one that smells like stale cigarette smoke, that is the worst.
    I say SUCK IT UP SMOKERS, face it...you stink.

    I agree that smoking in taxis is AWFUL. In New York, the cab drivers are notorious for burning incense, too, which is possibly worse. My problem, though, is that big rigs are not passenger vehicles. They are private areas, not public, like a taxi, so they should be treated somewhat differently.
    As a former smoker myself, I feel some compassion for puffers, but I think the push to get people to quit smoking is VERY important. (And you guys do a much better job of it than we do, with your VERY FRIGHTENING messages on cig packs.) Still, I think this may be legally iffy.
