Tobacco's Last Stand

Tobacco's Last Stand

                                Tobacco's Last Stand
| 44 min

In this feature documentary, we head to Norfolk County, Ontario, an unusual Canadian town where anti-smoking forces are the enemy in a community that proudly celebrates the annual tobacco leaf harvest and supports a feisty pro-tobacco mayor. Firmly in denial about the consequences of second-hand smoke, community leaders proclaim their right to freedom and economic success against the backdrop of a growing anti-smoking campaign and a heated city council debate on making the community smoke-free.
