Poll: Should gas heaters be banned?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

A leaky gas heater sent six people from Melville to hospital - one in serious condition.

Firefighters were called to the smell of gas and found a leaky heater at the scene.

The poisoning has prompted calls to ban heaters like the one involved - something which has already happened in Canada and most of Europe.
Do you think gas heaters should be banned?
