DO YOU KNOW THE QUALITY OF THE AIR YOU ARE BREATHING?

Air quality is affected negatively by vehicular traffic.  Areas near to the Turcot and the Decarie interchange are particularly affected because of the high rate of traffic.  The MUHC is right along the Turcot.  There are eighteen stations on the island of Montreal which measure the quality of air around them.  The air quality index measures the concentration of six pollutants in the air.  It is possible to find the station closest to you and know what the level of pollution is and what pollutants are causing it by using the following link:http://ville.montreal.qc.ca/portal/page?_pageid=7237,74495616&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL
