Illness Cost of Air Pollution (ICAP) in Ontario

From the Paper:

"On November 23, 2002 The Globe and Mail reported that the United States government was amending the Clean Air Act to make it easier for utilities, refiners and manufacturers to modernize and expand their operations without updating anti-air pollution equipment. Environmentalists described this development as "a sweeping and unprecedented erosion of state and local power to protect the public health from air pollution." (Heilbrin, 2002, p. A19)
"The links between air pollution and public health are also important issues in Ontario. Ontario, notably southern Ontario and particularly the areas around Toronto often have significant air quality problems. In Toronto, in the summer, air quality warnings and alerts have become more frequent of late.
"In May 2000 the Public Health Department of the City of Toronto released Air Pollution Burden of Illness in Ontario. This report attributed 1,000 premature deaths and 5,500 hospital admissions to poor air quality in 1999, in the city of Toronto alone. (Toronto, Public Health Department, 2000)"
