"Quebec health authorities say that up to 70 deaths have been linked to the recent heat wave that gripped the province for nearly a week.

While the muggy temperatures have since returned to seasonal norms, the blistering heat reached more than 40 with the humidex some days throughout Quebec.

In Montreal, 34 people died from heat-related complications. Another five deaths in Laval and nine in the Montérégie have also been attributed to the weather.

Authorities in the Eastern Townships, east of Montreal, also confirmed at least nine deaths.

Health officials also linked at least three deaths in the Quebec City area and eight deaths in the Mauricie region to the heat." - Global News
