Toronto's medial officer of health has also issued a heat warning for the city.

It's going to be a scorcher for Canada Day.

Environment Canada says the "most significant heat wave in the past few years" will grip Ottawa and all of southern Ontario over the next week. A cold front will usher in a slightly cooler air mass for today. He said that while the mercury will remain "elevated", overnight lows in the mid-teens will provide relief to many.

The national forecaster says temperatures could reach the mid-30s with humidex values into the mid-40s, while some areas could see severe thunderstorms.

Collins would oppose court pick with Roe v Wade 'hostility'
Similarly, Justice Neil Gorsuch, who Trump nominated to the Court a year ago , is widely seen as a pro-life conservative. Collins says a nominee who demonstrated "hostility" to the Roe decision "would not be acceptable to me".

Environment Canada also warns to watch out for serious medical conditions such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and to seek medical help if anyone is suffering from any of the symptoms of a heat-related medical emergency. Daytime highs in the low thirties are expected to persist through most of next week.

"If we take a look at the individual temperatures for the weekend from Friday to Monday, we were basically looking at the low 30s in terms of temperatures", says Environment Canada Meteorologist Gerald Cheng.

The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

To prevent heat stress during a heat alert, Dr. Strang suggests to stay in a shaded, cool or air-conditioned area, drink plenty of water, wear light-coloured clothing and to not leave anyone or any animal unattended in vehicles.
