Leading Brands Announces Launch of Canada Fresh Air™

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ:LBIX), North America’s only fully integrated healthy beverage company, announces the launch of Canada Fresh Air™.

More than a billion people afraid of what they have to drink and breathe. The following map, reprinted from www.waqi.info, starkly shows the contrast between the polluted air quality of Asia’s large urban areas and that of the vast natural, open reaches of Western Canada:
