What prematurely kills some 500 people in Ottawa every year, and about 14,600 in Canada?
It’s air pollution. How serious is that? As I stated in an opinion piece published in the Ottawa Citizen (see link below), that’s about as deadly as the COVID-19 pandemic. Halfway through 2020, about 240 people had died in Ottawa from the Covid-19 virus and about 7300 in Canada.
