weather location wrong in Dashboard view

the city under the Information is correct but when it displays the weather, it's Cupertino!

If you mean the weather widget that comes with the Mac, dump it - it is notoriously inaccurate in Canada. Get the WeatherEye widget from the weathernetwork.com. Much better coverage and lists many small, obscure Canadian centres.

I agree - the weathernetwork is far superior, esp. if you reside in Canada

i've actually found it accurate for the Vancouver area
after a few tries, it reverts to my region...not sure why it begins with Cupertino but i'll give the one you recommended a try, thanks for the tips

I like this widget. Canadian Weather Forecast

It pulls its data from Environment Canada and it covers a lot of small communities.

It's a great widget. When there is a weather watch or warning, it shows up on the widget. Click on the watch or warning, you will get to the Weather Network webpage that shows the details.

On the same page, the ENVIRONMENT CANADA SATELLITE, RADAR AND FORECAST MODEL IMAGES is very useful.
