'The same trend has been observed in Saskatchewan and Alberta where the number of intense tornados per year has generally dropped since 1920.'



According to this article,the Province of Alberta, is actually getting less Tornadoes, now,compared to years ago.
Using tornadoes as one of the main indicator for severe weather pattern is not accurate. From the article, Climate Progress -http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/05/21/2040221/tornadoes-extreme-weather-and-climate-change-revisited/

"1.When discussing extreme weather and climate, tornadoes should not be conflated with the other extreme weather events for which the connection is considerably more straightforward and better documented, including deluges, droughts, and heat waves.

2.Just because the tornado-warming link is more tenuous doesn’t mean that the subject of global warming should be avoided entirely when talking about tornadoes."
