Canadian wildfires impact US air quality

Smoke from Canadian wildfires has been drifting south into the United States, affecting air quality for millions of people in the Northeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. New York City's air quality index topped 320 on Wednesday, June 7, a level of pollution deemed "hazardous" by AirNow.gov, an air quality data site maintained in partnership by several government agencies. https://www.cnn.com/2023/06/07/weather/gallery/canadian-wildfire-smoke/index.html

    For a country that considers itself a first world country, Canada is doing a shoddy job controlling these fires.

        In as much as wild fire mitigation is demanding, Canada Government must now have better mitigation strategies to curb this menace. I suggest more surveillance into our forests to aid in noticing the smoke before the insane fire.
