Well, you sort of answered your question in your post. You named a bunch of areas where tornados are frequently found, and Ottawa is not one of them!
We NEVER get tornados up here, so if we were to get one, it would indeed be relevant for aviation and such, because it's not something people and airports are prepared for/accustomed to.
That being said, I do not understand any of the meteorological data above!

Jean, those were just Meterological Reports and Specials issued for the YOW airport for pilots / dispatchers, etc. "FC" indicates funnel clouds. It's very rare to see them in the forecasts or actuals.
SegmentKing is obviously not concerned about funnel clouds (with possibilities leading up to tornadoes). Severe weather conditions are of safety hazards to aviation. If it's not newsworthy to you then don't reply. Your post was simply senseless.

I can't imagine that a funnel cloud is that newsworthy in YOW. Tonadoes happen frequently in all parts of North America that is a) east of the Rockies and b) north of the Gulf of Mexico. This is due to a) warm Gulf air from the south b) cold canadian air from the north c) jet stream windshear d) dry lines.
Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Take it easy, SegmentKing. Like EGGD said, it made the METAR, and as previously stated, twisters (or funnel clouds) aren't common at YOW. If we had a funnel cloud at SNA that affected flight ops, I'd expect to see it on this board too.
If you're pissed off about something, go take it out on your pillow or something.
