RealWeatherWatch: The Western Canadian Forecast with David Phillips of Environment Canada

For a great deal of farmers, this summer has been fantastic and the harvest weather has been the same. Compared to this time last year the difference has been night and day. So the question now is, will this weather last? Will we see an extended
