CBC Elitism... we're above the law

LOL... almost missed this one...
The CBC has a dirty secret - employee smoking rooms

TORONTO - Despite Ontario's strict prohibition on smoking in the workplace, employees at the CBC's downtown Toronto headquarters are legally lighting up inside two smoking lounges outfitted with plush sofas and ashtrays, a Global News investigation has found.

Hidden cameras captured smokers puffing away and ashtrays filled with cigarette butts inside the public broadcaster's Toronto building, and the CBC says its workers can smoke in similar designated rooms at its locations in Montreal, Moncton, St. John's, Nfld., and Saint John, N.B.
Take a peek at the video.

Had to laugh at this one. Once again, the folks at the CBC think they're better than the rest of us... Ontario's smoking ban doesn't apply to "US". True, technically it doesn't, but I thought they were supposed to be the good examples for the rest of us?

Nah... just another example of the culture of entitlement.

    So all of this righteous indignation because an entity that isn't required to follow the smoking laws, actually ISN'T FOLLOWING THE SMOKING LAWS!!!! Holy crap!!! What next?!? Cats and dogs living together?!?

    In short, you could have saved yourself 180 words if you'd realized that there was nothing to report.
