  • Wildfire smoke sparks special air quality statement from Environment Canada

Environment Canada says wildfire smoke is causing poor air quality and reduced visibility in Edmonton, Sherwood Park and St. Albert, Alberta.

Environment Canada issued a special air quality statement for the Town of Drayton Valley along with surrounding towns and hamlets, including Breton, Warburg, Devon, Calmar and Pigeon Lake.

However, by Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday, the smoke could drop to lower levels and be more widespread, and Spare the Air alerts could be called mid-week if the air quality falls below federal standards, district officials said.
