Air pollution prematurely kills some 500 people in Ottawa every year, and about 14,600 in Canada.
How serious is that? About as deadly as the COVID-19 pandemic. As a comparison, halfway through 2020, about 240 people died in Ottawa from the Covid-19 virus and about 7300 in Canada. But we want to change this.
