Air quality continues to improve across the Lower Mainland, but that isn’t the case in Whistler.
The air quality was so poor Monday afternoon, on a scale of one to ten, the Air Quality Health Index showed a risk of 11.
Whistler Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden.
“I wasn’t shocked at the advisory, I was shocked when I woke up this morning and looked out the window. I’ve lived here in Whistler since 1973, I’ve never seen anything like this before.”
The provincial air quality numbers show Metro Vancouver has a low to moderate level of particulate in the air.
