Trying to keep citizens safe from extreme heat with helpful precautions is the focus of Paulina Ayala, MP. An Editor's Note: the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, PC, MP, Prime Minister Of Canada, Conservative, Calgary-Southwest is an asthma sufferer who lives in an urban riding so he should definitely pay attention here.
"This phenomenon is most common in high-density neighborhoods, which are often home to the less fortunate. Children & the elderly are especially susceptible to its effects. Heat islands can affect human health in many ways: an alarming incidence of asthma among children, more emergency room visits, & a significant increase in the number of smog days."
