All of Canada is Below Zero!

Did you know that on February 10, all the capital cities in Canada had temperatures of below zero? This is only the third time that this has happened in over 100 years! 

Tips to keep warm this winter:

  • Cover up! Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with windchill.
  • Watch for shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain/weakness, numbness and colour change in fingers and toes.
  • Listen for cold temperature advisories in the media!
