A group that tracks air quality in the Sea to Sky corridor says the area is doing well compared to many other parts of BC, but there’s room to improve.
Kari Mancer of the Sea to Sky Clean Air Society was in Gibsons recently to for an updated that included the latest results from monitoring in the region.
Mancer says they’re especially concerned about PM, or “particulate matter” from smoke, industrial polution, or vehicle exhaust.
The Town is currently looking to renew membership in the Society… it’s also trying to get Metro Vancouver to build new monitoring stations in the area, before a proposed garbage incinerator gets environmental approval. Port Mellon is on the short list of sites for that project
