Gone are the days of designated smoking sections and rooms. UBC is making it clear that smokers are unwelcome. They’ve been relegated to a smoking pole. Looks like a few smokers have missed the mark. The smokers’ pole is located well beyond the six required metres from the door of the Scarfe building. Not that I’m complaining. Now we just have to walk by a ring of smoke instead of through a wall. I won’t be surprised to see a smokers’ poll pop up though.
