Alert to remain in operation

The Canadian government announced its new "Northern Strategy" (Canada’s Northern Strategy: Our North, Our Heritage, Our Future) on 26 July. Among other elements, the strategy (CBC report here) commits the government to "maintain the signals intelligence receiving facility at CFS Alert".

That should put concerns about the possible demise of the station to rest at least until the next round of budget-cutting in Ottawa.
