Channel 7 News Report.

A story about my campaign against smoking bans in psych wards was broadcast tonight on Channel 7 news. Check it out!

I was pleased with the report and felt it was very fairly balanced. I would have liked the chance to reply to Fiona Sharkie from Quit Victoria at the end of the report. So here's my reply:

"Fiona, I absolutely agree that everyone at the hospital has the right to a smokefree environment. That's why I'm asking the Alfed to install small smoking shelters in the courtyards attached to the psychiatric wards. This would allow smokers (who make up 80% of all psych patients) to smoke, and non smokers to enjoy the rest of the courtyard. Problem solved."
