Environment Canada mulls weather radar in the North

I can't see more weather radars being a bad thing. And as for the harsh wether etc, well, the military had the DEW line up there for years - the problem is obviously not insurmountable.

Asked why there are no radar sites in the North, the CBC received this response from spokesperson Mélanie Quesnel:

“The current radar network was put in place 20 years ago in Southern Canada and no new radar has been installed since. The Meteorological Service of Canada is currently evaluating the need for radars in the North.”
