Clean Air Day Event Set
Prince George, B.C. – Bike to work Week may be over, but there is another incentive this week to encourage folks to use “active transportation” or make a pledge to help the environment.
This Wednesday is Clean Air Day across the country , and the City has joined with the Prince George Air Improvement Roundtable to provide a special celebration station for cyclists and those willing to make a pledge to do the little things to help keep the air clear.
Andrea Byrne is with Environment Services for the City of Prince George. She says the pledge doesn’t have to be to ride a bike to work “There are ways in our daily activities that we can reduce our impact” she adds the pledge may be along the lines of pledging to park your car and go into the store instead of idling in the drive thru , or it could be to hose down the driveway before sweeping, “Just actions like that to mitigate impacts to the air quality”.
Members of PG AIR will be on hand on Wednesday morning to take those pledges, which could lead to a prize. By taking the “Clean Air Pledge” , participants can also be entered to win a Mr. Pizza propane oven or a gift certificate towards cycling gear.
The celebration will take place at Veterans Plaza from 7 to 9 am on Wednesday.
The City needs to make a bylaw banning the “drive-thru” window. It would be a small step but at least it would do more then proclaiming a “Clean Air Day”.
Drive-thrus have their place, they are good for people with kids in car seats or the disabled, not so much for the lazies sitting in their vehicle staring at their crotch…
I agree 100%.
Elon Musk pays his employees to ride a bike to work in California . Pretty astute guy and only half his brain is Canadian .
How well does that work for his employees when it’s 20 below and snowing in California? I suspect that even our very owner biker extraordinaire Jillian wouldn’t be out in -20 and snow!
Oops, we’re talking about California, no need to worry about the weather there!
No Pulp Mill dumps this week then?
Stopping the solar radiation management programs here and around the world will help to clean air. Look in the sky PG – the wispy vein-like “clouds” is actually aerosol sprayed into the atmosphere containing aluminum, barium and strontium. They can’t hide it any longer so NASA is acting like they’re doing the world a favor. That’s right folks – this toxic cocktail is in every breath you take, but be completely enamored with the colorful clouds
If the City is concerned about clean air they better first scrap their plans to rezone the property at foothills and 18th for PG Transit maintenance and operations facility. We already have enough pollution in the City from industrial operations.
