    ‘From domestic to international: Tornadoes around the world’

    Website has world map of where tornadoes occur.

    U.S. has 75% of the world’s tornadoes.
    Canada has 5% of the world’s tornadoes

    The majority of tornadoes occur in the Great Plains and Great Lakes areas of Canada with Southwestern Ontario being one of the hot-spots because these are the Northern tracks of the U.S. Tornado Alley. Or North American Tornado Alley.

    Maybe the MOE and Wynne should be reminded of these facts?

    Scroll down to Environment Canada tornado map which only includes information thru 2009.
