Fighting pollution one finger at a time

As promised by Baird, when announcing his plans to save the environment, Canadians are going to have to make sacrifices in order to lower our carbon emissions. Harpers government wants to reduce smog-causing additives in paints, stains and varnishes. 

According to CNEWS: Baird is proposing limits on volatile organic compounds, which are found in everything from house paint to nail polish and vehicle coatings. Baird says the compounds are the second largest contributor to smog in Canada, after vehicle emissions.

Apparently they are not quite as concerned about the Tar Oil Sands. At least not in the same way.

PS: In all fairness Baird probably saw the word "Organic"and thought is was a Liberal additive.
