Finally, some good news...

Summer to be a hot one, says Weather Office -

Of course, this forecast is riddled with caveats. If only all civil servants could be as frank as Environment Canada's David Jones:
"I'm not trying to embarrass my organization at all, but you as a consumer of this information need to know that our skill at predicting precipitation over a long-range period is extremely low.

"In fact, honestly, we can't add much value to the forecast on precipitation."

Try to imagine substituting the word 'precipitation' here with 'compliance', or 'spending'.
