Legion Air to Get Less Smoky

2004_11_03legion.gifDude, it used to be that you could rely on the legion for communal smoking, and a good roast beef raffle every now and then. But Health Minister George Smitherman says that may soon be no more – the smoking that is, not the beef. Despite the GTA-wide smoking ban, an exemption had been in place for private clubs. But Smithy says the new legislation will outlaw smoking in any building that’s not a private resident. Guess that’s more money for the members to wager on the next ‘meat draw.’ Torontoist expects we can look forward to some commentary in the pages of the Legion’s own creatively named magazine, Legion Magazine. And then again maybe not.
