Ultra-high ultra-violet in Montreal

w-heat-cp-9004724-1.jpgEnvironment Canada put Wednesday's UV index at 11 in Montreal, which is considered extreme.

Daybreak spoke to André Belisle, president of the Association Québecoise de lutte contre la pollution atmosphérique.

We asked him what happens when the UV index gets this high, and what it could mean for people who go out in the sun.
