The cover of today’s New York Post takes aim at Canada over the wildfires.

New York City has experienced record breaking bad air quality this week due to Canadian wildfire smoke.
It’s so bad that New York City Public Schools- the largest school district in the U-S- will pivot to remote learning on Friday.
