Canada’s Air Quality Declines as Wildfires Proceed


Wildfires Proceed

Wildfires proceed down though Quebec and towards Ontario as the air quality declines rapidly. There are many people in Canada and even New York that are struggling to breathe today.  Environment Canada has urged people to stay inside because of the poor air quality and side effects it can have on your health. In the Tillsonburg area, the Air Quality Index is at an unhealthy 62 AQI today with a high level of pollution. Environment Canada is also urging people to wear a N95 mask if you need to go outside to reduce inhaling any fine particles that might be in the air from the fires.
