Tory Green Plan Will Re-Package Old Number!

From CTV:

[The Tory Plan will] repackage an air quality health index to give it much higher profile. The index already exists but many people are not aware of it, and it could be given prominence similar to that of the UV index which is reported in most cities on a daily basis

Apparently, the new and improved index will rate air-quality on a scale of one to ten, and it will be color coded! When the air is "safe to breathe" (one to four on the scale), the color will be bright pink, the shade of a healthy set of lungs. As it moves towards ten ("stay inside with a wet rag over your nose"), the color will slowly turn a phlegmy green, like the skies over Hamilton when the steel mills are running.

Nice. Instead of doing something, the Tories will provide a new means of measuring the cost of doing nothing. Perhaps the Magic of the Marketplace will take over when the whole population is on its knees and gagging in the streets!
