CDN Government invests in weather infrastructure

The gov't taketh away, the gov't then trieth to buy votes using our money. Verily, this should have happened much sooner.

The weather, water and climate data used by Environment Canada to produce warnings and forecasts is provided by a set of observing networks across the country that includes:

- weather radars;
- land-based and marine surface weather and climate stations;
- upper air stations (balloon-borne instruments called radiosondes);
- the Canadian Lightning Detection Network; and,
- satellite ground receiving stations that receive Canadian and international satellite data.

Oh yes, and note that Environment Canada bureaucrats have no backbone when it comes to using taxpayer moner for political branding.
