I have become increasingly involved in efforts to reduce secondhand smoke exposure and overall smoking prevalence since 2004. I played a crucial role in working with the Vancouver Parks’ Board towards the 2010 Smoke-free Parks and Beaches Bylaw.

More recent efforts have included working towards smoke-free multi-unit dwellings including meeting with municipal and provincial representatives, letter writing (including for the affected plaintiffs in a 2012 successful BC Human Rights Tribunal case), several media interviews, and a publication. My efforts in this regard are supported by Vancouver Coastal Health Tobacco Control, and Physicians for a Smoke-free Canada, both of which I keep in close contact with.
