According to Environment Canada, temperatures in the region will exceed 31 ° C during the day and 18 ° C overnight this weekend. Environment Canada is urging residents to be cautious during the Canada Day long weekend. In hot weather, it is important to listen to the warning signals that the body sends you in case of dehydration.

Discontinue your activities or work, drink water and rest if you experience dehydration or heatstroke.
Here are the symptoms:
- intense thirst,
- unusual tiredness,
- headaches,
- dizziness,

- muscle cramps.
In the absence of proper action, the condition may worsen, possibly going as far as heat stroke, which can be recognized by elevated body temperature, confusion, and fainting.
