Summary

The goal of this project was to inform debate by facilitating discussion amongst informed Canadians about how to improve air quality, and by reporting the results to policy-makers. The secondary goal of this project was to demonstrate to policy makers how the views of average citizens evolve when they have the time and resources to learn more about an issue, such as air quality. Public Policy Forum held four regional, weekend-long forums. A random sample of interested adults were invited to participate. Forum attendees then participated in a series of discussions, and articulated their favoured methods for addressing climate change to policy makers.
