Stay cool in Vancouver Cooling Centres this summer

Comments
CoolingCentre

You can’t catch a break at night, tossing and turning from over-heating. You can’t catch a break during the day, it’s too smoky to leave your house. But now you can beat the heat and skip the smoke because the City of Vancouver has opened up its cooling centres for anyone who needs some cold, somewhat fresh, air.

The air quality advisory is still in effect while wildfires are being contained but Vancouver’s Community Centres and libraries are now open for those who need to catch their breathe from all the smoke.

Here is a list of places to go if your lungs need a break:
