Canada most polluted country in continent after Trudeau bungled wild fire response

A new air quality report found that Canada had the most polluted air of any North American country in 2023, as critics say the Trudeau government's scattered response to the disaster likely made matters worse. "2023 marks the first time in our report’s history that Canada had such high levels of PM2.5," Natasha Ganes, Public Relations Manager for IQAir North America, told Fox News Digital. "Wildfires in the summer of 2023 devastated air quality throughout not only Canada, but also the United States as well due to transboundary haze and air pollution that drifted across borders." "During May of 2023, PM2.5 levels in Alberta surged almost ninefold compared to the same period in 2022," Ganes added. "In fact, most of the 10 most polluted cities in Canada in 2023 were in Alberta due to those fires." Canadian Prime MinisterJustin Trudeau has continually sounded the alarm over climate change, even saying in 2021 that "climate action can’t wait" and committing to "creating a green economy" while trying to "cut pollution and build a cleaner future for everyone." A spokesperson for Canadian Minister of Emergency Preparedness Harjit Sajjan told Fox News Digital, "The government of Canada believes in science. Climate change is real and knows no borders. Denial is no longer an option." "That is why Canada has taken several steps to prepare for and adapt to climate change and its unrelenting impacts," the spokesperson said, noting that 90% of the country’s forests are owned and managed by respective provinces, and the federal government coordinates with them in response to fire crisis.  https://www.foxnews.com/world/trudeaus-bungled-wildfire-response-made-canada-most-polluted-country-continent-critics

          Canada with the worst air quality in North America is disappointing! This is what happens when wildfire response is bungled. Protecting our forests is crucial. Canada needs a better plan to deal with wildfires in a changing climate.

            immediate action should be taken before the damages are beyond repair..both the us and Canadian government should work together to ensure both countries reduce the amount of pollution.

                I sent Justin my method for putting out peatland fires recently so it should be a bit better this year. See my blog for details on how to put one out near you and get a spaghnum named after you.
