With a scorcher of a weekend ahead for southern B.C., Environment Canada is reminding people about heat-related illnesses.
Forecasters are calling for a “major heat wave,” with temperatures of 40 degrees in the Interior and low thirties on the coast.
Officials say those most affected by extreme heat are people under five years old and over 65.
It also reminds people to never leave children in parked cars.
Environment Canada says temperatures will dip slightly Monday, but it’s going to be hot right through Canada Day.
