Public health takes aim at bagel ovens

I don’t eat much bread but I’m feeling like I should go eat some bagels now and pay close attention to their taste and texture because wood-burning ovens are in the sights of the public health authority, which would like to see the bagel bakeries shut down.

Afterthought: What happened to that news story about how one of the air quality stations turned out to be close to a woodstove pizza place, which distorted the average readings for the whole island of Montreal?

Shoe drop: That Metro piece says resto and bakery smoke is responsible for a mere 3% of the particulates in the city’s air. That’s nothing! Surely we can make other sacrifices to keep bagels, wood-fired pizza and other delicacies on the menu?
