Smog Warning

Issued at 15:10 Monday 05 December 2016

High concentrations of fine particulates are expected and will result in poor air quality.

High levels of pollutants are expected to persist until Tuesday near midday.

###

Smog especially affects asthmatic children and people with respiratory ailments or heart disease. It is therefore recommended that these individuals avoid intense physical activity outdoors until the smog warning is lifted.

In Quebec, wood heating is the main source of fine particles that contribute to smog during winter. This activity generates the largest number of these particulates, more than industrial activities and transportation.
