Good On Ya

A blow for smokers rights. Ignore the stupid law and let the businesses who haven't the guts to fight it take the fall. I like it. That Sean Penn what a bad boy.

Penn's smoking to cost swanky hotel $600 in fines

CTV.ca News Staff

The swanky downtown Toronto hotel that allowed actor Sean Penn to light up and smoke a cigarette during a Toronto International Film Festival news conference, will be levelled with more than $600 in fines.

Images of Penn lighting up, then puffing casually away during the event at The Sutton Place Hotel made headlines around the world on Wednesday.

Though Penn -- who was in town for the premier of All The King's Men -- won't face charges, Ontario's Health Promotion Minister Jim Watson confirmed the hotel will be issued two tickets. One is for $240 for failing to post no-smoking signs, and another is for $365 for not attempting to stop Penn from smoking.

Either you are a smoker, or you are one of the few Libertarians who understands that Libertarianism is about more than property rights.
