Lecture: A Conversation with “Canada’s Weatherman” David Phillips

David Phillips, Canada’s foremost weather guru and author of the best-selling Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar, will discuss everything you wanted to know about snow, as well as why Canadians are so passionate about their weather. You’ll enjoy his awe-inspiring snow facts, along with his fascinating stories about snow’s effects on our country’s infrastructure, economy and people’s behaviour. CBC Ottawa climatologist Ian Black sits down with Phillips for the last half-hour of the evening to find answers to some of the public’s most frequently asked questions. Plan to arrive early so you can visit Snow, the special exhibition that explores the impact of snow on the lives of Canadians past and present. In English with simultaneous translation.
