Smoke-free Places Act, New Brunswick

It prohibits smoking in indoor workplaces and enclosed public places, including bingo halls, bowling alleys,
casinos, restaurants, bars, and outdoor eating and drinking areas within restaurants and bars.

Ban on smoking in vehicles with children comes into effect in January 2010.

Motorists are being reminded that a provincial ban on smoking in motor vehicles when children are present
comes into effect Jan. 1, 2010. "The prohibition of smoking in cars when children are in car will ensure
more protection for young people from the health risks associated with second-hand smoke," said Health
Minister Mary Schryer. "This initiative is a step forward to protect the public from second-hand smoke and
to reduce the use of tobacco products."

The Smoke-free Places Act prohibits smoking in a motor vehicle when a person younger than 16 is present.
Similar legislation exists in Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia and the Yukon, and is being put in force
in Manitoba and Prince Edward Island. Research has shown that the effects of second-hand smoke are
experienced more intensely by children than adults because of their frequent respiratory rates. In sealed,
enclosed spaces such as cars, tobacco-smoke may reach levels 23 times higher than in a house. "This
legislation will go a long way in protecting New Brunswick children from the dangers of second hand
smoke, said Anne McTiernan-Gamble, the executive director of the Canadian Cancer Society.

"Reducing exposure to tobacco is critical to ensuring the best possible health outcomes for our children
now and in the future. "Provincial drivers are reminded that failure to comply with the legislation is a
punishable offence, and offending drivers may face fines of $140-$570. Other initiatives aimed at decreas-
ing and recouping costs associated with tobacco use in New Brunswick have included a ban on tobacco
displays and point-of-sale tobacco advertising as well as the launch of a lawsuit against tobacco companies.

"This ban is also another step in the de-normalization of tobacco products, which will reduce how often
children see tobacco being used, said Schryer. "It is another effort in not only reducing children's exposure
to second-hand smoke but also in trying to prevent children from beginning to use tobacco products. It
will encourage the residents of New Brunswick to lead a healthier lifestyle that does not include tobacco."

ニューブランズウィック州はカナダの東端の地域に位置し大西洋に面している。フランス語を話す州民が約30%を
占めている。カナダではフランス語を公用語としているケベック州があるが、英語とフランス語を公用語として
いる州は、ここのみである。州都はフレデリクトンで、総人口は2009年の推計で約75万人である。

海洋性の気候とはいえ、冬はマイナス10℃以下に下がる。霧が多いが、夏は過ごしやすいのかも知れない。筆者は
1974年6月にカナダ、ケベック州から米国、メイン州に向かう際に、車でこの地を通っているが、断片的な
記憶しか残っていない。あまり特色のない地域であったと思う。

ニューブランズウィック州喫煙規制法を2008年1月に実施した。その目的は公共的施設、職場での有害なタバコ
副流煙の悪影響から州民を守るためである。全面禁煙規制範囲にはビンゴホール、ボーリング場、カジノ、
レストラン、バー、およびこれらの飲食設備の屋外席を含む。さらに、2010年1月から子供を乗せた個人所有の
車での喫煙行為を禁止した。車内の子供たちに対するタバコ副流煙の有害性は家屋内での場合の23倍も強い。
この措置は子供たちがタバコに手を染めることを防ぐことにも繋がる。
