Title
Unmaking Manly Smokes: Church, State, Governance, and the First Anti-Smoking Campaigns in Montreal, 1892-1914
Abstract
The author examines a series of anti-smoking campaigns at the turn of the twentieth century by the Montreal Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) that were part of local, provincial and federal campaigns for age restrictions on smoking and cigarette prohibition. The Montreal campaigns were particularly unsuccessful in comparison to those undertaken in other provinces. The author points out that one of the reasons for the failure of the campaigns in Montreal is that the WCTU’s anti-smoking position originated in a particularly gendered vision of social gospel Protestantism that was not embraced by French Canadians.
