Lives with Asthma


“Cigarette smoke – [in all forms] – is a large trigger for me and can induce an asthma attack. Walking some streets in cities or taking transit means having to hold my breath and wait for a smoke-free moment to take a breath. I have had to move seats on the train when seated near someone who smokes, or stand far from the bus stop. I’ve lived in a few cities in Canada and this is a consistent issue”.
