Will China's fight against smog influence Canada's environmental targets?

China's pollution seems to be the stuff of legend.

According to the China Daily, search parties have been sent out looking for tourists lost in the smog on at least one occasion. Air travel is also affected. According to news reports, for example, a Russian Aeroflot plane was recently forced to circle Beijing for over an hour while waiting for wind to clear its view of its designated runway.

Ivey Professor Jim Hatch notes in his latest blog on China, that the problem will take a long time to solve and outlines the impact this will have on Canadian environmental targets.
