1930: The fiercest heat wave in years was scorching the Canadian prairies.
Several people drowned in lakes and rivers as thousands tried to escape the
heat, and damage to crops was extensive. A Winnipeg, MB, man thought to be
suffering temporary insanity due to the heat attempted to kill himself with
a razor; when his wife tried to stop him, he inflicted serious wounds to her
face and throat.

1937: It was 45°C in Saskatchewan-the hottest ever in Canada. Starved
grasshoppers were too weak to fly. The crushed insects covered railway
tracks. Regina authorities worried over water quality and quantity as
Wascana Lake shrank. Near Oxbow, farmers harvested old buffalo bones from a
dried lake floor. At $12 a ton, it may have been their first decent harvest
in years. [Ron Petrie, Regina Leader Post]
