Smokiest year in Calgary’s history
Smoke has blanketed Calgary for more than 270 hours this summer, breaking the 1969 record of 268 hours, according to weather historian Rolf Campbell.
“At five o’clock (Thursday) we broke the all-time record for smokiest year ever observed at the Calgary airport,” Campbell told CTV Calgary.
The new record is a bleak reminder of the wildfires that have been burning in Alberta and B.C.
