Wednesday was the hottest day ever recorded in Vancouver, according to CBC meteorologist Claire Martin.
At 5 p.m. PT, Environment Canada recorded a high of 33.8 C, breaking the previous record of 33.3 C set in 1960.
Martin said anyone hoping the heat wave blanketing B.C. will be breaking anytime soon might just have to find some other way to chill out...
