TORONTO -- The vibrant colours of Ontario's fall foliage could have a shorter display than expected this year after a hot and dry summer.

Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips said the trees in eastern Canada could soon show the effects of a hotter and drier summer than normal, and they may not hold on to their leaves for very long as fall colours arrive.
