Muzikaal verzet

De Canadese band The Intended ondervindt de gevolgen van de barre anti-rookwetten in Canada als geen ander. Bars, waar ze regelmatig optraden, trekken nog zo weinig bezoekers, dat ze hun optredens niet meer kunnen betalen.


Uit puur protest schreven ze een nummer, The Smoke Police, waarin ze de wetten aan de kaak stellen.

De artiesten hierover:


I have a counrty rock band called The Intended and a new album , Route 101.
There is a song on the album called The Smoke Police {words by Eric Layman music
by Matt Finlayson} which is a political satire on the smoking by-law issues.


Our band, The Intended have also been effected by this issue as you can
imagine. Pubs and or bars that have hired us in the past are losing patrons and
as a result can’t afford to hire bands. We are still playing but business could
be much better if not for the smoking laws.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
