End man-made fires
There should be a crackdown on those who cause wildfires
Justice minister wants to lower legal alcohol limit for drivers, restaurant industry concerned
Wildfire Season Summary
British Columbia saw an unusually early and active start to its wildfire season in 2016, but overall the season was considered to be “below average” in terms of its cost, number of fire starts, and amount of land burned. Humans were responsible for causing over half (or 566) of the 1,050 wildfires that started in 2016.
The lower alcohol limits, which are justified, also show the crying need for transport alternatives to the private car. If I'm going out to a restaurant and know I'll be drinking wine, I don't take my bicycle: I take the métro or the bus. But that isn't possible everywhere nowadays.
There are also a lot of people who shouldn't be driving even if they've had nothing to drink or smoke...
Well said lagatta
