The wild fires burning in Quebec and northeastern Ontario continue to impact the air quality across southern Ontario with Toronto reaching a 10+ on Environment Canada’s Air Quality Health Index yesterday – the highest level and the worst among Ontario’s major cities.

Environment Canada says particulate matter from the smoke in the air is most concerning and it’s coming in at well over five times the usual level.  That is making it particularly difficult to breath for people with asthma or COPD.

Federal Health Minister Jean-Yves Dulos says if you must be outside you should wear an N-95 mask, but he’s suggesting you stay inside as much as possible.

School boards in Toronto, York and other jurisdictions have decided to hold recess inside and many minor sports leagues have cancelled outdoor games out right.
