Today is Clean Air Day in Canada.
Fortunately, we have clean air in the Comox Valley right now as people are not heating their homes or burning their yard waste. But, sadly, we all know the pollution will return.
If you want to take a moment to celebrate this day, please consider writing to our local and BC representatives to tell them to take meaningful action to clean up our air.
Tell them it is time to work harder to increase awareness of wood smoke issues, to change attitudes towards wood burning and to put effective regulations in place that will protect public health (email addresses are in this WORD document).
