Canada announced a new program aimed at cutting acid-rain causing emissions in half by 1994. The initiative includes stricter controls on automobile emissions, beginning in the 1988 model year, and the spending of more than $200 million over the next 10 years to curb sulfur dioxide. The acid rain problem is expected to be a topic of discussion when President Reagan visits Prime Minister Brian Mulroney later this month. Canada contends that 50% of its acid rain comes from the United States.
