Has anyone else noticed that Canadian winters are getting milder, less snow and virtually no more snow in November?
I live in Montreal and since past few winters our first snow falls like in middle of December and done by March.

Milder winters and warmer summers

Alberta is getting hammered by snow this year...Heck Quebec I believe it was so cold last year pipes were busting in Quebec and both those those regions (Quebec/Ontario) got hit hard last year esp. with Super Storm Sandy as it headed up North.

Looking at climate data from Environment Canada, it's not something that's noticeable in Alberta or Saskatchewan, at least. Average daily temperatures have remained roughly consistent over the past 50 years (that's all the data I looked at). Average snowfall in the months of October and November has also remained relatively consistent between years.

I usually gauge how severe a winter is by how much extra clothing i have to put on to combat the cold , the last couple of winters
Long jeans instead of shorts.
a shirt over the t shirt.
a hoody instead of full winter parka
running shoes instead of winter boots
I also gauge winter by how many times i have to dig the car out after a major snow storm, here in Montreal just twice last year..

This is fantastic.

I wish Toronto's winter will be 5C warmer (to -2/4C on average, with almost no days below -10C), with 50% less snow (no more than 2 sizable snowstorm a year).

When I lived in Montreal about 15 years ago, there was no snow before I went home for winter break (mid December).

I have been hearing about winters in Toronto getting warmer every since I was a little kid. If any of this were true ... in the past ~~25-30 years .. Toronto winters would have warmed up to the level of the winters in Bangkok, Thailand.

... now that wouldnt be good for the Polar Bears in Churchill ...

I would say that this November at least has been colder than normal in Quebec and Ontario, with only a few above-normal days (like last weekend).

Me too.
I think it is just a gigantic scam just to feed certain people's political ambition (and create fake jobs).

Even if it were real, the only question I want to ask is, is there a way to expedite the process? as Canada will benefit from tremendously.
