Toronto in 2040: Hotter days, more heat waves, increased flooding

The City of Toronto’s Subcommittee on Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation held its first public meeting in early March.

Also highlighted were the risks to public health and city infrastructure as a result, partly, of increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events. So what can Torontonians expected over the next few decades when it comes to extreme weather? It doesn’t look good.
