Pollution monitoring cuts at Environment Canada

These cuts are truly irresponsible and should be of concern to all Canadians.

This EC group provides an unbiased measurement, research and analysis function that allows for an accurate assessment of the levels of potentially harmful emissions from industrial activities.

So I guess it will be up to polluters to monitors themselves. Oh boy. I feel pretty darn safe, don’t you?

I thought it so back in the early ’80’s when I interviewed the author as part of an undergrad paper I was working on… and I still think so today.

    The good news for Canada is that if no one looks for pollution then no one finds pollution and therefore the pollution disappears. It looks like if we keep Harper around a while longer we will stop polluting, stop pay inequality for women, stop jeopardizing native Canadians health and education etc. Why if we can just get rid of enough people in the Auditoe general office we will eliminate wasteful spending too.
