Chairperson’s Message

Peter Walsh, Chair of the Airshed Roundtable
“The Quesnel Air Quality Roundtable exists to monitor air quality, and ensure that the air we all breathe becomes the best it can be. We work co-operatively to monitor air quality, educate and encourage all to improve air quality over time. The Roundtable group has representatives from all ‘air users’ within the City’s area; concerned citizens, Light and Heavy Industries, Local Government, and Health, all of whom are committed to continual Air Quality improvement in Quesnel.”
