カナダ・ケベック州喫煙規制ケベック州の改正喫煙規制法は2006年6月から施行されている。 対象はすべての
職場、公共的屋内空間、大学、保健医療社会福祉施設内部および周囲9メートルの空間である。ホテル客室に
最大40%のゲストルームを喫煙室に設定できる例外条項があるが、この点はオーストラリア、ハワイ州などより
も規制がゆるい。ケベック州の公用語はフランス語であり、道路標識、喫煙警告はすべてフランス語にて
表示されている。

ケベック州の州都、ケベックシティは1985年に北米の都市としては初めて世界遺産に指定された。筆者は1973年
にこの地を訪れたことがあるが、街全体の雰囲気はそう変わっていない。標識も全部フランス語であり、フランス
本土を旅行しているのと大差ない。城壁に囲まれた地域が旧市街、セント・ローレンス川沿いの崖下にある街が
ロゥアタウンと言われている。いずれも徒歩で回れる距離なので、気に入った場所に戻るのは容易である。


見学する価値があるのは、ケベック州議事堂であろう。建物標識にHOTEL とあるが、公共建造物の
ことを意味する。ツアーの時間は決められており、入場するには空港のセキュリティよりもさらに
厳しいチェックがある。写真付きの身分証明者の提出の他、空港では行わない身体検査もある2006年
6月から施行された改正喫煙規制法案はここで誕生した。州議会議員たちが熱弁をふるい法案を
審議することを想像すると身が引き締まる思いがする。

VIA Rail Canada , Gale Guebec (Qubec Railway Station)は長距離列車の発着するクラシックな
駅である。標識はすべてフランス語であるが、その意味は読み取れる。案内所ではカナダ各地域の
現在時刻を表示してあった。ユニークなのは、駅のロビーに歯科医院だ。洗練されているとは言い
難いが、親しみあるターミナル駅である。

ケベック・シティには大規模なケベック大学病院がある。敷地内は全面禁煙であるので、病棟の入院患者が
点滴セットを抱えたまま病院前の狭い歩道で喫煙していた。

ラ・マルベ・ フェアモントホテル( Fairmont,Le Manoir Richelieu) はカジノを併設する、この地の中心的な
ホテルである。セントローレンス川を眼下に臨み、秋の静かなひとときをゆっくり過ごせる。
ホテルには全室405室のゲストルームがある。そのうちの28室が喫煙ルーム、377室が禁煙ルームとなっている。
喫煙室の割合は6.9%となる。

1893年開業、ケベックシティの象徴的な存在となっている古城風のホテル、ホテル、フェアモント・シャトーは、
全室618室のうち、smoking room の割合は15%で、10階と15階にある。 ヒルトン・ケベックは全室571室の
うち smoking room は20室である。最上階が smoking room で、禁煙客室は2階から22階までの全室である。
ネット上に公開されている数値とは大きく異なるが、筆者が実際に現場で確認した範囲では、フロントで得た
