Until then, air quality levels can be expected to oscillate between unhealthy and moderate.

Thick smoke blanketing British Columbia communities far from any flames - including Vancouver where the haze Monday obscured the city's mountain views - could be particularly harmful for children and seniors but anyone with poor health should take precautions, says a senior scientist. An alert was also issued for today.
