(3) cigar and pipe tobacco sales by the operator of the cigar room generated a gross income of $20,000 or more for the operator for the taxation year preceding the taxation year in progress on 10 May 2005.

Not later than 1 November 2006, the operator of a cigar room must delimit the cigar room using floor-to-ceiling partitions or walls so that it is fully enclosed, and equip the cigar room with a ventilation system that maintains negative air pressure at all times and exhausts smoke directly to the outside of the building. The operator of the cigar room must also, not later than that date, equip the cigar room doors with a properly functioning self-closing device.
