I'm Sick of Smog!

Smog is killing me, you, and everyone you love in the GTA; so what are we doing about it? I assumed since the air is so bad that we are doing nothing, I was kinda wrong. I decided to look into this issue of air in Toronto and instantly google told me about GTA Clean Air Online that will tell you the air quality for Toronto. That's all fine and good, but what about action?

I had no idea that Toronto has its own One Tonne Challenge and that there was a Smog Summit in June. The Clean Air Partnership is a Toronto charity that exists to make the air better. Some organizations are doing something, but it really boils down to each individual making a contribution to help to reduce smog. If you want to reduce smog go and support things like car free day in Kensington, write your councilor, stop idling, ride your bike...
