カルガリーはスタンピードで有名だが、筆者は1962年にカルガリーを訪れてスタンピード(カーボーイ暴れ馬大会)を見物した
が、予め購入していた指定席が柱の陰で、見にくいながらも大観衆とともに、ロデォショーを楽しんだ。その日の朝は、
カルガリーに入る幹線道路の両側には地元の人々が、私の車のイリノイ州ライセンスプレート名を大きな声で読み上げて
歓迎してくれたことなど昨日のように思い出される。そのカルガリーが50年の歳月を経て、石油・天然ガス産業、農業、
ハイテク産業などの進展とともに高層ビルの林立する都市に生まれ変わっていた。ダウンタウンから郊外にはトラムも
走っている。夏(6月−8月)の平均気温は16℃で快適であるが、冬(11月−3月)の平均気温は-9℃と非常に寒い。

一年前のオンタリオ州訪問に続いて今回はブリティシュコロンビア州とアルバータ州を旅行した。
その目的の主要な部分に
最近の喫煙規制、医療事情の視察が含まれていた。カルガリーではすばらしい
医療施設が完成していた。更に驚かされたのは
病院が自己の敷地内で自家発電していたことだ。外部の電力には依存しない、その体制には感服した。タバコ規制も定着しており、
一般の人の目にタバコが見えないようにした取り組みは、健康社会を目指す国として、これまた感動した。ホテルの喫煙ブース
は完全に消失し、いまやほとんどのホテルで喫煙者用の客室が完廃され、屋内全面禁煙体制が構築されている。取材を通して、
自己管理できない喫煙者を「哀れみの目で見る」、そうした姿勢を読み取ることが出来た。旅行中お会いした親切なカナダ人に、
この席でお礼を申し上げたい。
