Wildfire smoke continues impact air quality

A special air quality statement continues for the area.  

Environment Canada has been advising since the weekend that smoke plumes from forest fires in the region and in Quebec have resulted in deteriorated air quality.  

The agency says poor air quality may persist through the day on Monday.  

Officials also say air quality and visibility due to wildfire smoke can fluctuate over short distances and can vary considerably from hour to hour.  

Throughout Ontario, 40 fires are burning as of Monday morning.
