Sean Penn is a Wanted Man in Canada

Smoke 'em if you got 'em? Not in Ontario.

Well, unless you're Sean Penn.

Penn, Sean

The actor has created quite the stir in Toronto by blatantly breaking the city's no-smoking law. He puffed mightily on a cigarette during a hotel press conference there to promote his Oscar contender, All the King's Men.

Maybe Stephen Baldwin wants to save Penn now, too.

But this is no laughing matter. If you're Health Promotion Minister, Jim Watson.

"He should be charged," Jim Watson. "It was such a flagrant breach of the law."

Perhaps Penn can share time in pokey with Jason Wahler.

Michael Perly, executive director of the Ontario Campaign for Action on Tobacco, told the Toronto Star that the actor "absolutely should be a target."

This controversy fuels critics that believe anyone rich and important can simply skirt such a law. But don't worry, folks, Mary-Kate Olsen can still be arrested for the offense.

She isn't important.
