Andrew DeNardo "As someone who has been a smoker – on and off – for the last 25 years, I appreciate the way in which the QCC Tobacco Policy was crafted: with an awareness of all sides of the issue, and with respect and empathy for all QCC stakeholders – smokers and non-smokers alike. I hope that there will be those, like myself, who really do want to quit smoking, who will see this as an opportunity (rather than an inconvenience) to succeed.”
