Environmental Issues of Canada
Acid Rain comes from when factories let out a lot of pollution and mixes in with the clouds. When it rains all of the chemicals from the pollution fall down with all of the other water. Sometimes the water will get into the Great Lakes and pollute the water and might even kill some of the fish and animals that live by or in the water can get killed. Also people can not fish in that area so they can not catch anything to feed their families with.
Mining for minerals and getting Natural Resources from places around the Canadian Shield can effect the environment around it too. It has been proven that blasting and digging with heavy machinery causes the land around it to be damaged and the environment ruined. Also mining process can let out a lot of pollution and cause acid rain.
In Canada there has been a lot of lumber companies forming, and now people are tearing down trees and animals homes. Most limber companies cut a certain area out of a forest and just leave a giant hole in the middle of the forest. Also it causes a lot more erosion to happen when they take out the trees, it reduces water quality, and when they use heavy machinery it can compact the ground.
