Because it’s time for some good, scary summer reading, this week This Magazine launches a six-week web feature on air quality. The first part of the in-depth series by This‘s own Jesse McLean is now online. Part I, “We don’t need no regulation,” challenges the myth of Canada as an environmental leader by looking at our air quality regulations — or lack of them.
Future installments will explore — among other things — the effects of bad air on childhood asthma rates, transboundary pollution from the United States and the Aamjiwnaang people’s deadly exposure to chemical plants.
So throw on that gas mask, and stay tuned.
