It’s high time we butt out

Minister of Health Margaret MacDiarmid has said that this years Weedless Wednesday was a great success.
Established in 1977, National Non-Smoking Week seeks to help people quit smoking and to prevent people who do not smoke from beginning and becoming addicted to tobacco.
Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease and death in British Columbia. While B.C. has the lowest smoking rate in Canada at 14.2 percent, there are still approximately 550,000 British Columbians who smoke. An estimated 70 per cent of smokers in BC want to quit.
Quitting smoking can be the best thing you can do for your health as it will reduce health risks like cancer, heart disease and asthma. There are a range of supports in place through our Smoking Cessation Program, and accessing them can be as simple as calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1.
