In response to the extended heat warning, the city has opened a number of cooling centres around Toronto.

Eleven people have died in the city as a result of the heat, according to a Quebec public health official.

Friday is forecast to be 28 C with a 40 per cent chance of showers. "And also keep in mind to make sure you don't leave any people or pets in your vehicle, as temperatures will rise dramatically within minutes".
