If you’re travelling keep in mind that Environment Canada issued a series of cold weather warnings, which means cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
The agency is asking people to watch for symptoms related to the cold, including shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and a change in the colour of the fingers and toes.
In British Columbia, the agency warned that the Yoho Park and Kootenay Park region could see wind chills as low as -40 C due to a cold arctic ridge of high pressure that it predicts will remain over the region for several days.
