There's a typhoon on the way. The fourth of the year. It's supposed to be a big one. It's been all over the news for the better part of a week1, and most people are aware of when it will hit their particular area. For Canadians who have regular access to the Internet but zero knowledge of Japanese, don't watch TV, or have any friends to warn them of the impending danger, the Canadian government is there to get the word out.
Batten down the hatches!
It's nice that the government is making the effort to look like they're keeping tabs on their citizens, even when they haven't paid any taxes in over four years, but sometimes I wish they'd remember my name. Dear Canadian citizen sounds so ... generic.
