"Human societies have always had the capacity
to affect the world around them. However, it
is only in the relatively recent past that we have
been able to cause significant harm to our
environment, particularly the atmosphere."

"Until quite recently, Canadians tended to take
clean air for granted. Indeed, for many of us,
clean air was something that set Canada, especially urban Canada,apart from the rest of an increasingly polluted world. But times have changed. Today, few Canadians are complacent about air quality. Air pollution has become a key environmental and
health priority."
