Air pollution is today one of
the most vital and urgent problems confronting Canada. Pollutants in the air are causing injury to people, animals, vegetation and property. The progressive increase and complexity of air pollution brought about today by urbanization, industrialization, automobiles and the nuclear age, call for increased national leadership to protect all our national resources, including clean air. Within the limits of federal jurisdiction, this bill provides for action to assist provincial, regional, municipal and private agencies to abate air pollution.
