Quebec health officials say at least 50 people are now believed to have died from heat-related complications.

The number of dead grew each day this week, and even yesterday, there were 17 deaths today, the toll reached 33 people.

Officials say the heat wave is the worst the province has seen in decades.

Montreal's health department reported 18 deaths, seven were reported in the Eastern Townships, six were reported in the Mauricie-Centre-du-Québec region, Montérégie's public health department reported two and one more was reported in Laval.

Charlebois, meanwhile, was asked about complaints from patients groups and health workers that some facilities are not equipped with air conditioning.

They also asked people to check on elderly or infirm friends and neighbours who may have been vulnerable.

The winger spent the second half of last season on loan at Hull City, scoring seven goals in 14 games and is looking to kick on this term.

No deaths have been reported for the same period in the province of Ontario.

This, too, played a factor in the current heat wave, which began June 29.

But Ontario does not track heat related deaths in the same way as Quebec and does not report on potential causes of death without a coroner's investigation.

Canada's weather department added smog warnings for certain areas of the province on Thursday, when the heat wave is forecast to end.

"I've never experienced something lasting that long", he said, "We've [the Environment & Climate Change of Canada] been having a few phone calls with urban and regional security offices".
