Lives with Asthma


“It is my understanding that Toronto has had, for a number of years, a measure of air quality and warnings out for people like myself who suffer lung trouble. It would be terrific if more Canadian communities across the nation would put air quality warnings on the news websites, weather websites, newspapers, and many other places where ever possible so that persons suffering from any sort of breathing problem [are] aware of weather conditions, and what can happen, where to get help, etc. When the weather is really cold out here in Calgary, or there is a strong wind outside, or it looks like I may have troubles breathing if I am not careful, I do use the inhaler, if I have to absolutely go out, but stay in if going out is unnecessary”.
