Smoggy days..

So apparently, the city of Laval is going to cut its transit rates on days when smog is heavy – from $2.50 to $1, at an estimated cost of $10,000 per day. I applaud the general idea, because public transit does seem to be a good idea, but I’d love to see transit rates cut across the board. Cutting them only when smog is heavy treats the symptoms, not the disease.
