What is your view?

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

WE’RE urg­ing Queens­lan­ders to speak out and have their say about smoke-free places across the state to help shape the fu­ture of tobacco con­trol in Queens­land.

Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land, Heart Foun­da­tion and Asthma Foun­da­tion have launched a statewide sur­vey on smok­ing, giv­ing Queens­lan­ders the op­por­tu­nity to share their opin­ion about cur­rent and fu­ture smoke-free places.

The sur­vey will gauge sup­port on cur­rent tobacco laws and iden­tify ad­di­tional ar­eas the com­mu­nity would like to see smoke-free, in­clud­ing out­door public ar­eas and multi-unit hous­ing.

Those who smoke or are ex­posed to sec­ond-hand smoke are at a much greater risk of de­vel­op­ing chronic dis­eases, in­clud­ing heart dis­ease and can­cers.

Will you share your views? Have your say to help clear the air for thou­sands of Queens­lan­ders im­pacted by sec­ond-hand smoke.

If you’re a Queens­lan­der aged 18 and over, please com­plete our Smoke-free Places Sur­vey at www.can­cerqld.org.au/smoke­freeplaces­sur­vey by Oc­to­ber 16.

— Chris McMil­lan CEO, Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land
