Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show recently discussed the problem of lead both in the US and Canada. Will this move from an isolated problem or show up everywhere?
“The amount of lead in the water supply of major Canadian cities exceeded safe levels in hundreds of thousands of homes, a major investigation has found.
“Some areas showed lead levels “similar” to those in the US city of Flint, Michigan, during its 2015 water crisis.
“Out of 12,000 samples taken from 2014 to 2018, one third exceeded the national safety guideline of 5 parts per billion (ppb).
“Canada has the third-largest per-capita fresh water reserve in the world.
“Lead contamination has been linked with low IQ in children, hypertension and heart disease.”
In this commentary Price argues that, instead of being taking a defensive view of the problem, we should assume that it is going to become as all these plumbing systems reach certain ages.
