Weather Network Comes Back

Goderich | by Rick Stow  

The Weather Network will be back in Goderich on Thursday to see tornado cleanup.

It's not surprising that the Weather Network was among the national media doing stories on the F3 tornado of August 21st.

Crews from the Oakville-based network will be back in Goderich to do a follow-up story on Thursday.

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission had been considering removing the Weather Network from the basic Cable television package all Canadians receive, and making it a subscriber option.

The Town of Goderich -- devastated by an F3 tornado August 21st -- took the time to write a letter of support to the Commission.

It asked that the Weather Network remain part of the basic cable television package.

Council was advised by Pelmorex Communications, owners of the Weather Network, that its letter may have had some impact.

The Weather Network's licence was renewed to August 2018, and it will remain a basic service.
