“In the last five years, Lawyer Karine Fournier has developed an interest in non-smokers’ rights in condominiums and apartment buildings. ‘We tolerate the neighbour’s barbecue, we tolerate the smell of a domestic animal or its hair, we tolerate noises, even noises after 10:30 pm that prevent us from sleeping. Therefore, each neighbour must be tolerant towards each other. However, when these inconveniences go beyond a reasonable and tolerable limit to become excessive, then the person may be forced to cease the behavior that has become a nuisance to neighbours’.”
