9 Eerie Pictures of our Smoke Covered City

Residual smoke from wildfires in the States ignored the border closure and blanketed our city in a foggy haze. The smoke left us with some of the world’s worst air quality over the weekend, it also made for some creepy but beautiful views.

The smoke created an eerie vibe in the city, and many made the wise decision to stay inside. Health officials warn that the smoke can pose health risks for those with respiratory health issues, pregnant women, and anyone planning strenuous activities. The haze is supposed to ‘improve marginally’ this week, hopefully we’ll see those clear skies we’re used to soon!

While we have to deal with the minor inconvenience of a smoky city, our neighbours to the south are facing these life threatening fires first hand. Please keep those affected by the fires in your thoughts and prayers.
