Letter: Smokers shouldn't walk away from their responsibilities

It’s almost summer and it’s dry already. A no-smoking ban is in effect in Crippen Regional Park and signs have been posted. Unfortunately “Pall Mall Blue” and “Belmont” neglected to heed the warnings.

Fewer and fewer areas today allow smoking. If you are a smoker it’s downright annoying, but if you must smoke please pick up your darn butts and dispose of them appropriately. Don’t butt them out on the ground as you’re sitting on the bench enjoying the serene surroundings of the garden and then walk away.
