excerpt via BREAKING NEWS: Environment Canada Releases Geoengineering Programs to C.A.N. by Frank Gotz (Oct 27, 2013):

"I sent an e-mail to Environment Canada (EC) on Aug 2nd 2013 asking for a list of companies that are participating in geoengineering in Canada pursuant to the Weather Modifications Information Act.  The WMI Act is a piece of legislation which lists the rules, restrictions and punishments for modifying the weather in Canada without government permission.

I received reply back one month later from an EC representative, by the name of Isabelle Landry , who informed me that they need my home address because the amount of information they wanted to give me was too big for an e-mail and they would send me a disc.  Approximately one week later I received a package in the mail from EC a long with a letter which wrote:

“Dear Mr. Gotz

Thank you for your email message of August 2nd, 2013, requesting a list of companies participating in geoengineering activities, specifically weather modification, in Canada…

Starting in 1948, the federal government was involved in weather modification experiments.  Most of these activities took place in the 1960s and 1970s….  The research programs declined in the second half of the 1970s and ended in the early 1980s.

Currently, there is one hail suppression program operating in Alberta.  The activities are conducted by Weather Modifications Inc.  In an attempt to reduce damage caused by hail, the company seeds some developing thunderstorms in the Calgary-Red Deer area between May and September of each year since 1996.  It uses silver iodide as a seeding agent.  Weather Modifications Inc has been the only company undertaking weather modification activities in Canada during the past 15 years.

With respect to the use of silver iodide by Weather Modification Inc, the emissions produced by this compound are considered to have negligible environmental or health impacts.  Material safety data sheets for silver iodide are readily available online.  Measurements of silver iodide concentrations in regions where silver iodide-based weather modification activities have occurred have not found concentrations that were above the natural background concentrations.  For long-term, larger scale weather modification operations, EC endorses the position of the World Meteorological Organization that the implications on ecosystems need to be assessed.   For more details please consult www.wmo.int/pages/prog/arep/wwrp/new/documents/WM_statement_guidelines_approved.pdf 

The Assistant Deputy Minister of Environment Canada’s Meteorological Service of Canada is the administrator of the Weather Modifications Information Act.  Under the Act, any weather modifications undertaken over Canada need to be formally reported to the DepartmentWeather Modifications Inc provides the necessary reports to Environment Canada on a yearly basis.  Regarding your request for information on who has sprayed what, and where, I am attaching the records from 1996 to 2011 for your interest.

Please accept my best wishes.

Sincerely,

The Honourable Leona Agulukkaq, P.C, M.P
Minister of the Environment”

The Assistant Deputy Minister of the Meteorological Service of Canada is David Grimes.  David is the administrator of the Weather Modifications Information Act and according to the letter I received it indicates that David literally over sees and knows all weather modification programs that are happening in Canada.  David is also President of the United Nations World Meteorological Organization and President of World Meteorological Organization -WMO/OMM.  This guy is big.

From her response above, Leona Agulukkaq says in regards to silver iodide that, "emissions produced by this compound are considered to have negligible environmental or health impacts" while later admitting, "For long-term, larger scale weather modification operations, EC endorses the position of the World Meteorological Organization that the implications on ecosystems need to be assessed".
