The emergency alert system here in Ontario (and maybe all of Canada?) is now officially defunct of any serious credibility.
Too many false alarms.
They use the system for Amber Alerts. This is a key mistake. Amber Alerts are important, but in the vast majority cases you, as the recipient of the notification, are not affected.
What's the natural reaction to that?
@GeoffWozniak "CANADA ALERT: It's a really nice day, eh? You should go outside."
@GeoffWozniak yep, the system was terribly implemented (not everything has to be the highest alert level), and now pretty much everyone in Ont has alarm fatigue.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
