Quebec is following suit in passing anti-smoking laws in public places. This is a relatively new phenomenon that is sweeping the globe. At the SFAA conference, a lot of the smokers I spoke with were from all over America and Europe, and they all told me of these cessation laws that were affecting them either recently or currently.
I was contacted by Marion Scott of the Montreal Gazette last week for an interview she was doing for the Big Butt-Out series in the paper. She was focusing on the social aspects of smokers. The article ran in today’s Gazette and can be found here .
The paper I wrote about the subculture of smokers can be found here.
