Smoking kills one person
This year, Québec Tobacco-Free Week highlighted the suffering wrought by tobacco use among smokers and their loved ones. Smoking makes thousands of people sick every year and unfortunately, kills one person every hour in Québec. By participating in our mobilizing activity on Facebook, smokers, ex-smokers and non-smokers had the opportunity to share their wish to create a smoke-free world. You were more than 38 000 to become fans of our Facebook page throughout the campaign. We want to thank you for sharing your personal stories, which were very touching, and for your support toward members of the virtual community who were butting out!
Between now and next year’s campaign, we invite you to “like” our Facebook page Monde sans fumée. We’ll be resuming our activities for next year’s Québec Tobacco-Free Week in November 2013.
Thanks for taking part – and please, come back and see us again!
