Deputy Attorney-General v. Caterer

The Deputy Attorney-General appealed the dismissal of a criminal action filed against the owner of a catering business for failure to comply with the sections of the Tobacco Act requiring that workplaces, restaurants, and other places be smoke-free. The Court overturned the dismissal, finding that the regulations of smoke-free places in the Tobacco Act applied to the catering business.
