Environment Canada says Montreal summer weather is life-threatening

Environment Canada issued a warning to Montreal residents, advising them to be cautious of temperatures ranging from 28°C to 35°C, citing a “significant threat to life or property.”

Environment Canada says Montreal summer weather is life-threatening

Following a heat wave that brought summer-like temperatures to northern Saskatchewan, Manitoba, southern Ontario, and Quebec, Environment Canada has issued a heat warning, indicating that the health of citizens in these areas could “deteriorate rapidly.”

“Maximum temperatures between 28°C and 35°C are expected, with overnight lows above 20°C,” reads the severe weather statement, emphasizing the “significant threat to life or property.”

Despite the warning, some Canadians are describing it as a typical warm summer day, claiming they are unaffected, and many are enjoying the hot weather in Montreal.

“We used to call it summer. But Environment Canada (in association with Climate Change Canada) has decided it’s a significant threat to life… I’m not a meteorologist, but I think they could have settled for don’t wear tweed,” commented Charles Anderson on X. 

CTV warns of death for citizens experiencing climate change

Many mainstream media outlets are warning citizens about the potentially lethal consequences of climate change.

For instance, in a recent article, CTV News claimed that high temperatures are linked to 470 deaths each summer in Quebec.

They further reported 225 hospitalizations, 36,000 emergency room visits, 7,200 ambulance transports, and 15,000 Info-Santé calls in the province, all allegedly attributed to global warming.

Jérémie Boudreault, the lead researcher investigating this connection at the National Institute for Scientific Research, emphasized that these findings should send a strong message to the health ministry regarding the adverse impacts of climate change on individuals’ well-being.

He added that his research presents a compelling case for urging the government to implement measures aimed at preventing additional health risks.
