Particle pollutants spike after fireworks shows, studies show

Areas downwind of fireworks displays can experience sustained concentrations of fine particulate pollutants 16 times greater than the worst air quality day recorded in Metro Vancouver this fire season. And a growing body of evidence suggests that…
Areas downwind of fireworks displays can experience sustained concentrations of fine particulate pollutants 16 times greater than the worst air quality day recorded in Metro Vancouver this fire season. And a growing body of evidence suggests that short-term concentrations of fine particulate matter and potentially toxic metals associated with fireworks displays are a health risk,…

Backyard grillers are facing sticker shock for beef steak this summer, with retail prices for popular cuts up as much as 23 per cent over last year. Even the retail price of ground beef for hamburgers has spiked by 18 per cent since last May, according to Statistics Canada. But bad news for shoppers is…
