Air Quality in Canada improving: study

Air quality in Canada has been improving steadily for the past three decades, according to The State of Urban Air in Canada, released today by The Fraser Institute. The greatest success story has been a 94 percent reduction in the levels of ambient lead since 1974.

“While environmental alarmists continue to publish a steady stream of reports claiming worsening air quality, the data show quite clearly that the reality of environmental progress is overwhelmingly positive,” said Jeremy Brown, author of the study and policy analyst at the Institute. “Air quality is, in fact, improving dramatically in the developed world as improvements in technology, higher incomes, and democratic systems have created an ever-increasing ability to protect the environment.”
