Anti-smoking crusader dies

Ottawa — Heather Crowe, the face of Canada’s anti-smoking movement, died just a week before Ontario’s tough new anti-smoking act took effect. She was 61. Crowe is well-known for television ads in which she said second-hand smoke in the workplace caused her deadly lung cancer. For more information on The Smoke Free Ontario Act, of which Crowe was a staunch supporter, see Page 5.
