CTV: Ottawa Police and Ontario Provincial Police are warning Ottawa residents about fraudulent calls offering to inspect their heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment.

Police say the callers are posing as inspectors from Consumer Protection Ontario or similar organizations, and offering high-interest loans intended to lower HVAC-related fees. These callers may then ask to enter victims’ homes, in order to photograph their HVAC systems. Police say scammers will likely use this opportunity to canvass victims’ homes.

Police are warning residents to exercise caution before allowing anyone onto their property and to check with the service providers that the callers claim to represent.

CTV: Ontario, Quebec, the Prairies and parts of B.C. are expected to experience drastic drops in temperature in the next few days.

Starting Thursday, there will be extreme cold in northern Quebec, including wind chills nearing -52 C. Starting this weekend, heavy snowfalls and strong winds are forecast for Ontario and Quebec. On Saturday, temperatures will drop below zero across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Friday evening until Saturday, Nova Scotia is expected to have strong winds and 25 to 55 millimetres of rain on frozen ground. This precipitation could cause flooding on roads and in low-lying areas.
