The other story yesterday was the heat with more records falling across Ontario. Officially Montreal was just shy of 30C with cloud cover most of the day capping the temperature. This was not the case in Ontario where Toronto reached 36.8C, Windsor 37.8C, Kingston 33C, and Ottawa a sweltering 34.8C, all records for the day.
