“Environment Canada” Disappears from Government of Canada Site

On Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 in Press Releases

The words “Environment Canada” have been eliminated from the Government of Canada’s Weather website: http://weather.gc.ca

“As with other government websites where information has simply vanished, the removal of the words ‘Environment Canada’ from this site, which depends on the work and knowledge of Environment Canada meteorologists, is Orwellian,” said Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, MP Saanich-Gulf islands. “This does not bode well for the future of the department.”

The site, offering Current Conditions, instead features the ubiquitous Harper Conservative promotional logos for “Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity,” “Canada’s Economic Action Plan,” and “Tax Savings Working for You.”

May also noted that, “Canadians simply wanting to check the weather are being bombarded with Conservative propaganda. Is there no end to Conservative gall when it comes to promoting themselves with taxpayers’ money?”
