Changing Canadian Situation
There are not many government observing stations left in our changing Canadian situation. I am a flight service specialist with NAV CANADA. NAV CANADA Flight Service Stations and Flight Information Centres provide represent a fair number of weather observation sites within Canada.
The weather equipment at these sites is second to none for the most part. The information you are presenting is not correct. Environment Canada - Meteorological Services of Canada in turn pays for the data that NAV CANADA Flight Service Stations and Flight Information centres as well as Community Aerodrome Radio Stations Observer/Communicators and contract weather observers as well as other sources. I see that you live in Calgary, Alberta. How is it that you don't know where weather observations come from in Canada?Barry's Response
