Tough smoking laws lauded

Tough smoking laws lauded
 
Even a clean majority of Quebec's famously stubborn smokers - six in 10 surveyed - have apparently concluded that the province's year-old smoking ban within bars and restaurants has improved the health and quality of life of Quebecers.
 
That was one conclusion drawn from a survey Quebecers conducted May 1 through 13 by Leger Marketing, and bankrolled by the Quebec Coalition for Tobacco Control and the Association for the Rights of Non-Smokers.
 
With responses from non-smokers added to the mix, the overall approval rating for the tougher anti-smoking legislation was substantially higher, at 78 per cent.
 
Those who most agree with the prohibition are aged 24 to 34, giving it an 83 per cent approval rating.
 
"The more people go to bars, the more they appreciate the new law," according to Louis Gauvin of the Coalition. The ban took effect last May 31.
 
Two-thirds of Quebec's bar-goers told the pollsters they've found the atmosphere there more agreeable since the ban was put into place.
