A Citizen's Action Guide

Environmental Law Centre, Sierra Legal Defense Fund
For many Canadians, air pollution has become a pressing environmental and health concern. This guide provides a legal and scientific primer on clean air issues, as well as a compendium of strategies and tools to enable citizens across the country to protect and enhance the quality of the air we breathe.
This important book should galvanize Canadians into action by providing us with a wealth of information and concrete ways to act on issues of air pollution. For those asking themselves, 'What can I do?' this book provides answers. David Suzuki
