566 wildfires are burning in British Columbia. The province has declared a state of emergency. Firefighters have joined us from other provinces and other countries. The army has been called in to assist. Smoke hangs in the air across the lower mainland, affecting our well-being: our vision, breathing, and daily exercise.
I felt the need to get some exercise this week, so I tried to get out to the park and go for a run. I came back tasting the smoke, my eyes watering. My wife just looked at me and shook her head. Do you think it’s going to be different for you? Didn’t you hear the warning to stay inside and avoid strenuous exercise outdoors?
