Commentaire / Comment
I use The Weather Network frequently to help me plan what I do outdoors including how I run my business. I rent Canoes & Kayaks to people in Toronto and cancel their reservations ahead of time based on what I hear on the weather network. Also I know many of the people who paddle their own boats refer to the weather network for wind direction and intensity, possible lightning and many other safety related information daily. It is also nice for everyone to be able to look ahead and choose better weather days to plan outdoor adventures. Along with the essential weather alerts you get from the weather network, I think everyone with basic cable should be able to access this possible life saving tool. I look at other web-based weather tools and most are from the USA, and even Environment Canada doesn't get into the details like wind gusts or hourly rain/thunder forecasts for particular areas of our country like cities. Many older people don't use the web for info and rely on tv for weather, and the weather network provides the info every 10 minutes. I support the weather network staying on basic cable and being accessible to all.
