Posted on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 10:32 AM

Thunder Bay's Simon Hoad is getting props for his years as an anti-tobacco advocate.  

Hoad is one of 10 such people the province is recognizing today for their work to make public spaces smoke free.  

Hoad was co-chair of Tobacco-Free Thunder Bay, a coalition whose mission was to see the adoption of a smoke-free  bylaw.

 He's being recognized for making  Thunder Bay one of the early adopters of a more restrictive bylaw long before provincial legislation came out.
