Up in smoke
The Canadian Council for Tobacco Control (CCTC) wants Canadians — and people everywhere — to butt out.
This Jan. 17 to 23 is National Non-Smoking Week, a seven-day awareness and educational campaign that encourages people to quit smoking and discourages non-smokers from lighting up.
The CCTC first held this week in 1977 to educate Canadians about the dangers of smoking, motivate and help smokers to quit, de-normalize the tobacco industry and aim to ensure all Canadians live in a smoke-free environment.
There are only two Sundays left to catch “Soul on Ice” at The Forks. On Jan. 17 and 24 from 2 to 4 p.m., skaters can glide around the Canopy Skating Rink at The Forks Plaza while DJ Hunnicutt and DJ Co-op spin and transform the rink into a “dance floor on ice.”
Visitors can rent skates from Iceland Skate Rentals at The Forks Market Tower Atrium. Rentals are $5 for adults and $3 for children and seniors. The ice trails and rinks part of the Arctic Glacier Winter Park are open for skaters and pick-up games every day.
