FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Ottawa, ON) Member of Parliament for Sydney-Victoria Mark Eyking was honoured to make a statement in the House of Commons today recognizing Frankie MacDonald.
“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize weatherman extraordinaire Mr. Frankie MacDonald of Whitney Pier, Nova Scotia.
Frankie the Weatherman, as he has come to be known, has taken the internet by storm; making international headlines for his weather reports. He creates his forecast after monitoring weather on his television and computer and then takes to the internet with his knowledge and enthusiasm to let us know what type of weather we can expect and how best to prepare.
Since he was a young boy, Frankie has always been interested in the weather; his commitment and dedication to further his passion has led to his videos being viewed millions of times, turning his hobby into a career.
Mr. Speaker, I ask all members of this house curious of their weather forecast to visit Frankie MacDonald’s Facebook page for informative, up-to-date reports.
We as Cape Bretoners are very proud of Frankie the Weatherman and wish him all the best as he continues to keep us safe from Mother Nature.
Canadians are in the deep of winter, as Frankie says:
Stay Safe, Stay Warm, and Good Luck” Eyking stated
