YOUR SAY: Let’s sell our mountains air

DONE BEFORE: A businessman is selling Rocky Mountain air. Toowoomba Mountain air would be much better.

THERE is really nothing new that hasn't been done before is there? A Canadian Chinese businessman, Moses Lam, is hand bottling Rocky Mountain air and selling it for $20 per 7.7 litre canister. He is doing a roaring trade with his Vitality Air brand, because China air is so polluted.

Joan Dunlop and I could have told him tins of Toowoomba Mountain Air were selling from the Picnic Point Kiosk 60 years ago. Surely there is an enterprising businessperson in our city who could revive this industry?

Lam told the New York Daily News that after breathing the fresh air pregnant women said their babies kicked in the womb for the first time. That's nothing. If they breathed in Toowoomba air they would think they having twins.

Now, how many 7.7 litre canisters fit into a Cathay Pacific Cargo 747?
