CBC reported on a Heart and Stroke Foundation study on air pollution in Canada and its affects on health.

“Breathing dirty air is a threat to heart health, but few Canadians have made the connection.”

“Air pollution is a pervasive and unavoidable health risk for heart disease that all Canadians face — and most are unaware of its short and long-term impact.”

It called for incentives to reduce air pollution, investments in public transit and stronger legislation to ensure emission controls truly result in cleaner air.
