“Interdiction de fumer dans les logements, la nouvelles tendance?” by Jean-Philippe Langlais, L’Avantage newspaper.

L’Avantage newspaper quotes Montréal lawyer Karine Fournier in an article about banning smoking in housing.

In its Thursday edition, la Presse highlighted passages of lawyer Karine Fournier’s legal opinion, which stated that “there is no legislative provision prohibiting the landlord from banning smoking in their property.
