Lots of people smoke cigarettes. Its common to smoke or know someone who smokes. However, in Vancouver, there are many restrictions on smoking.
- You cannot smoke inside any building, including restaurants
- You cannot smoke in a vehicle unless it is yours.
- You cannot smoke in public parks or on beaches.
- You cannot smoke within 7m of doors or vents.
- You cannot smoke in public areas close to lots of other people, like bus stops.
These restrictions are to protect non-smokers from second-hand smoke as well as reduce garbage around the city. In the summer, Vancouver can get very dry, so these restrictions can also help prevent fires.
Canadians have stopped smoking cigarettes in the site recent decades because we now know that smoking can make you very sick so it’s difficult for smokers to smoke around the city. Canadians who don’t smoke think it smells gross and leaves garbage everywhere.
While the restrictions can seem harsh, I think it makes Vancouver a nicer place to live.

What better way to spend Victoria Day than by taking a trip to the city named after the Queen herself? Victoria Day, sometimes referred to as May Long, or May two-four (important note, a two-four is also Canadian slang for a twenty four pack of beer) is Canada’s oldest state holiday and marks the unofficial start of summer for Canadians.
Victoria is a hop, skip and a jump from Vancouver, just over the Strait of Georgia, an easy trip by public transit or, alternatively, you could rent a car and drive with friends (make sure to reserve a space for your car on the ferry).
Famous for its historic sites and fabulous architecture, Victoria is known as ‘The Garden City’, whether you’re interested in whale watching, shopping, or just walking around the beautiful sea front, there’s no shortage of things to do in and around the city center. Take a trip to one of the many beaches and spend a day in the sun admiring the gorgeous views. Spend the evening indulging in a delicious meal followed by some awesome craft beer and relax in one of the many airbnbs that offer affordable and comfortable accommodation.
A trip to Victoria is a must-do for anyone staying in Vancouver, so gather your friends and get packing!
