Children with asthma and people with respiratory problems or heart disease are also advised to avoid intense physical activity outside.

The warning also includes parts of the Laurentians, Montérégie, Lanaudière, Mauricie and Quebec City regions.

Despite Gatineau being just across the river, the warning does not affect Ottawa.

The reason: Quebec and Ontario use different programs to measure air quality, which means different criteria need to be met before a warning is issued, according to Environment Canada.

Meteorologist Peter Kimbell said in an interview that smog warnings this late in the year aren't that uncommon in Quebec, since many people there use wood-burning stoves.

Environment Canada said residents can help reduce the risk of smog.

"We can all help improve air quality by doing simple things, such as limiting the use of fireplaces and wood-burning stoves, opting to use public transit, reducing our driving speed and not letting our car engines idle unnecessarily," the weather agency said in a weather bulletin on Tuesday.

Labeaume, 61, known for his quick tongue and abrasive relationship with local media, is sometimes called "King Régis" for his ironclad hold on city hall and his brash management style.
