Modernizing Canada’s weather-radar network

Post by Canada Goose » Fri Mar 06, 2020 12:04 pm

The Government of Canada announced on February 28, 2017 the replacement of its weather-radar network. Canada’s radars network currently has 31 radars, including two radars operated in partnership with the Department of National Defence and one owned by McGill University. A contract has been awarded to buy and install 27 new radars by March 31, 2023. The contract also contains options to replace the remaining radars within the same timeframe. As part of this project, the radar network will be expanded by one radar to be installed in the Lower Athabasca region in Alberta.

Unreal how slow they are at getting this done. Pathetic actually. Worst radar coverage for a coastal province.

I know government moves slower than a drunk sloth, but even still, three years to install the first station, and six years before they're done?
