Why the attack on wood stoves when Ajax is right around the corner?
I just heard on the news that wood-burning stoves will be banned in Kamloops within the next 10 years due to the “pollution” they cause.
I’d like to know how many woodstoves are in use in the city and the stats on how much pollution they cause.
We have one to help heat our home in the winter. Today’s wood stoves burn cleaner and more efficiently than regular fireplaces.
Wood is a natural resource.
A few folks are going to make this decision for all of Kamloops to supposedly help make breathing easier, yet another few folks are going to bring in the Ajax mine, with all its known horrific health problems — but it is OK.
Have we all gone mad?
I don’t understand the logic behind this kind of thinking. I know it’s money-driven but, if people are truly concerned about our environment, can we not prioritize what is truly harming us?
