The Ministry of Health has said the changes to the Smoke Free Ontario Act replace a patchwork of municipal regulations governing smoking on restaurant and bar patios, and will not hurt their businesses.

The measures were first announced in November.

The province says tobacco kills 13,000 people in the province each year and causes an estimated $2.2 billion in direct health care costs.

This law has already taken effect in Ontario.

Purdy’s Chocolatier offers perfect gifts this Holiday Season, boasts #1 Chocolatier in Canada


DSC_9747Cruising around Square One Mall looking for the perfect gift, I stumbled upon Purdy’s Chocolatier. I was intrigued by their chocolate fountain placed in front of the store, so I approached and to my surprise found an abundance of chocolate of different kinds. The variety of chocolate that could be found in one store is just breath taking. They have a menu that lists all the chocolates in case you have questions.


DSC_9746The feature that really struck me the most about the store was their ready made gifts composed of different combinations of chocolates. For someone like me who doesn’t know how to wrap gifts, it is really a blessing. There are so many different combinations of chocolates in different styles of gift wrapping, the possibilities are endless.

I couldn’t think of a  better way to spend your Saturday night than skating outdoors, whether with your family or friends. You would definitely feel the Christmas vibe and that Christmas is just around the corner. The cold air rushing through your face while being serenade by Christmas Jingles, there is no better feeling.

Here in Mississauga, we have a place called Celebration Square where people gather for special occasions. The Square also features a skating rink that operates from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.

In my opinion, the best time to go is at night because it is when the square shines the brightest. The trees around the square are wrapped in vibrant Christmas lights and while City hall lights up in green and blue.
