Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the predecessor agency of Environment Canada encouraged its daily weather observers to make remarks about the changing seasons, extreme weather, etc. but it never figured out a way to use these remarks. With the Environment Canada collection of weather observations now at Western, Prof. Alan MacEachern is studying what they tell us about Canadians and climate.
