Amid all the disagreements in America over clear air legislation, its northern neighbors have put forth a plan to spend over $600 million in the next five years to address air quality concerns.
Part of the plan also includes negotiations with the U.S. about the same issues, as sharing a border also means sharing air, and these changes in pollution law may have a large ripple effect in America.
While the current plan makes no mention of specific steps to be taken to help clean the air, it does pledge to help with environmental reform and Canadian health by finding ways to safely and quickly decrease airborne toxins.
While the goal is admirable, the lack of specificity in the plan does mean that any solutions discovered may take years to come into effect. If you'd like to see a change immediately instead, at least in your own home, consider investing in a medical-grade air purifier like those we sell at FreshAirPro to clean your own air. Able to remove almost 100 percent of airborne pollutants, this equipment can help you get a jump start on the rest of North America.
