Alert Ready will be conducting a test across the province today to ensure the system’s readiness in the case of an actual emergency.
These routine tests of the Alert Ready system typically happen twice per year, with the last one taking place in May.
The test message will simulate an emergency alert. A message will be issued along with the alert tone indicating that it is a test and that no further action is required from the public.
The test is scheduled for 12:55pm.
We will be testing our system in most provinces & territories next week on Nov. 15 to ensure it operates as intended on TV, radio & wireless in the event of a life-threatening situation. See if and when the test will be in your location: https://t.co/Ykjd7h7Ifp #AlertReadyTest pic.twitter.com/ru7x8JzyBy

The Royal Canadian Mint is ready to begin circulating coins featuring King Charles.
On Tuesday, the model of the first Canadian coins bearing the face of the King.
The mint said a small amount of 2023-dated coins with the King’s likeness are to circulate in early December. The design shows the profile of the left side of the King’s face, with him wearing a shirt, tie and no crown.
The King’s face on the coins replaces the image of his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II. The mint has featured the portrait of the reigning monarch on Canadian coins since opening its doors in 1908. For the first time in 70 years, the image will be of a king.
A design by Canadian portrait artist Steven Rosati was chosen out of 350 artists. The winning design was sent to Buckingham Palace for approval.
Tesla’s Cybertruck will be released on November 30th.
If you’re in the market, you’d better read the fine print. In the Motor Vehicle Order Agreement, which lays out the new rules, owners can’t resell it for at least a year. If you do, Tesla can sue you for $50,000. If you have a good reason to sell your Cybertruck, Tesla may agree to buy it back at the original price minus “$0.25/mile driven, for reasonable wear and tear.”
First announced in 2019, the Cybertruck is Tesla’s first new product in years.
