why do some weather stations report decimals for temp in history, and others don't?

When I get the current conditions for toronto pearson, I never get decimal for temp_c:
conditions/pws:0/q/43.67,-79.63.json

When I check history for the same, I see decimals, but they're always zero for tempm:
history_20150310/pws:0/q/43.67,-79.63.json

But when I check another office official weather station (vancouver airport) it gives me decimals for tempm for history:
history_20150310/pws:0/q/49.277965,-123.110181.json

But the current conditions for vancouver airport also don't report decimals for temp_c:
conditions/pws:0/q/49.277965,-123.110181.json

So both are official non-pws weather stations. Pearson never shows decimals, but Vancouver only shows decimals in the history, but not in current conditions.

This is really inconsistent. Environment Canada (where I assume you get this data from) has their data available with 1 decimal point.

Nothing? No explanation?
