Southern Ontario still under extreme heat warning

Daytime highs are expected to reach to low to mid-thirties over the long weekend

The mercury has regularly topped 30 degrees since Friday in southern Quebec, accompanied by stifling humidity levels.

Urgences-Santé says it has been inundated by the volume of calls since a heat wave enveloping Eastern and Central Canada settled in for an extended stay over the weekend.

The city has also extended hours at eight outdoor pools during the heat wave.

High heat and humidity will return for Tuesday.

Walmart boycott threatened after outcry over 'Impeach 45' clothing
The superstore's online platform sold apparel promoting impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump . Last year, the retailer came under fire after a third-party seller offered t-shirts that suggested killing journalists.

Kaiser said one reason Quebec has been reporting so many deaths is because it's part of the province's extreme heat plan, where health officials work in tandem with first responders and emergency rooms to track down potential cases of heat-related illnesses and deaths.

The national forecaster says temperatures could reach the mid-30s with humidex values into the mid-40s, while some areas could see severe thunderstorms.

However, daytime highs are still expected in the low thirties in the next two days. Cool down is expected by Friday with the passage of a cold front.

All seven cooling centres in the city are open. Friday is forecast to be 28 C with a 40 per cent chance of showers.

Lingard and England ready to continue family affair in Russian Federation
Not surprisingly, manager Gareth Southgate says his team have been working on penalties. He has been practising penalties and certainly there were no problems against Panama.

Dr. Melissa Genereux, head of public health in the Eastern Townships, told a news conference the victims are all adults - either seniors or people suffering from chronic illness.

University of Waterloo climate scientist Blair Feltmate says the heat wave can't be directly attributed to climate change, but that suggesting the two aren't linked would be like arguing that no particular home run can be attributed to steroids when a baseball player on a hitting streak is caught doping.

"If you're doing well, make sure you check on those who may be more vulnerable - any friends and family, those who are living alone", Ms. Hobelman said.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
