No, not in the walls of your condo – in the air on the West Coast. Apparently global warming has turned the west coast into a breeding ground for a deadly fungus whose spores have caused the death of 8 people. From the globe and mail article:
Dr. Kibsey said some health officials have been â€œreluctantâ€ to publicize the potential risks for fear of hurting tourism on the island, which receives more than seven million visitors a year.
In the summer of 2002, for example, those investigating the outbreak had put up a number of signs warning of the potential risk of fungal disease in the popular Parksville area of the island’s east coast. But they didn’t last past the season. The signs, Dr. Kibsey recalled, had prompted a â€œhuge number of campers to cancel their reservations en masse.
â€œThey were taken down because the chamber of commerce put pressure on the medical health officer to remove them.â€
I don’t think the chamber of commerce should worry so much. Clearly the mold problems in condos hasn’t caused demand to go down for them so why would it negatively affect tourism?
