The rain and wind and end to some of the burning around town has brought air quality measures back below the thresholds.  As such, the Air Quality advisory has now been ended by the Ministry of Environment.

However, the City implemented a ban yesterday on all outdoor burning within City Limits that will continue until Sunday November 8th, inclusive.

It won’t be good fire lighting weather anyway.  It will be a great evening and weekend to sit in front of your warm and cozy EPA certified wood stove. 🙂
