Let elderly smoke inside

Let elderly smoke inside:

Alberta's smoke-free legislation exempts in-patients or residents of group living facilities and permits designated smoking rooms.
If there aren't any accommodations, it is not because of the anti-tobacco legislation, it is because these old-age homes are making decisions that make the lives of their staff easier while torturing old people by kicking them outside to smoke.
There is nothing wrong with a dedicated smoking room well in sight of staff who can monitor potential problems.

That letter is in relation to this letter.

Truthfully I don't have much to say except again how grateful I am that both my elderly smoking parents live with me and not in some home where they would be forced out doors to smoke.
