I’ve written before about the strange concept of Environment Canada issuing “Weather Statements”. My bank sends me a monthly statement, and politicians are usually more than pleased to make a statement. And given people’s tendency to put off paying their bills, I can’t tell you how many Statements of Account I have sent as a friendly reminder. But all of these statements, with the possible exception of the politician’s, have some substance to them. They provide information. Today Environment Canada issued the “Special Weather Statement” below.
Could they be any more vague? “Persons in or near this area should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions”. Should we be on the lookout for snow? Rain? Wind? Locusts?
