Commentaire / Comment

The Weather Network is our constant source of weather information. We depend on it. I work with seniors across the country and know from them that seniors count on TWN on a daily basis.
As a business person who runs outdoor events, I depend on it for my planning and execution.
Everyone, especially those who cannot afford more expensive cable and satellite TV packages should continue to have access to The Weather Network on the basic TV service. That is a no-brainer and we are surprised anyone would suggest otherwise. They rely on The Weather Network’s coverage to plan and stay safe.
Yes!! The Weather Network must stay as a basic service so Canadians. Especially seniors who do not have access to, or are uncomfortable using, broadband Internet should have access to weather news on TV. Remember, our research shows that although 70% of seniors have access to the internet, only have of them - 30% - actually us it for anything other than the occasional email with family...and then with help from a friend or relative. Seniors need their weather info on TV.
