Earlier, we reported the Campbell administration is looking to set visibility goals for wilderness areas and urban areas in the Fraser Valley. But Society Promoting Environment Conservation transportation campaigner David Fields said the Liberals should be more concerned with what's in the air rather than what it loooks like. "Coming from the B.C. Liberal government it doesn't surprise me that they're concerned about appearances on the air quality file," he said. "But our main criticism of the B.C. Liberal government is they don't seem to be willing to do the hard work when it comes to actually improving air quality. Like everybody, we're looking to the upcoming green budget to see if the Campbell government will meet the test. And we're also, of course, looking to see what they'll do on Gateway because everybody expect for the Gateway Program believes it will worsen air quality."
