Environment Canada issued a special air quality statement for New Brunswick yesterday after smoke from forest fires in Quebec drifted into the province.

Satellite pictures showed a smoke plume extending from the Gaspé peninsula through central New Brunswick.

In Greater Moncton, the smoke descended close to the ground for most of the afternoon.

Westerly winds helped push the smoke over Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island as well.
