Where in Canada will it be 25c in January or February as a normal temperature. I would LOVE to know.

You're being obtuse for the sake of making an argument.

Oh, I see. I was talking extremes. As far as normal mean temperatures, Canada varies from +7 to -37 in February. That's a difference of 44C/79F. That's a huge difference that you won't in many other nations.

The USA varies in February from 71.6F at Marathon, FL to 6.1F Mt Washinton, NH. That's a difference of 39C/70F. Obviously if we add in Alaska and Hiwaii the results are a little different, but then we are spanning a huge chunk of the world equivalent to Toronto to below the equator.

Your geography needs help. Hawaii is at 19 degrees north. About Cuba/Yucatan. So the US, north to south covers about 30 degrees of latitude, if you leave out Alaska. Canada covers over 50.

Where does it get 25 degrees in the winter in Canada??? I wanna move there!

Seriously I don't think the highest temperature in January anywhere in Canada ever went over 18c. And February it never went over 22c. That way there's no way there was ever even an extreme record high of 25c in the winter in Canada...

I don't know what you are talking about. Where in hell in Canada we do get an average 25 degrees in the winter?

The difference between -20 and -60 is NOT climate diversity. They are both perceived as extremely cold, so even if Canada possess 30 different degrees of coldness, it doesn't constitute climate diversity - a winter colder than winter is still winter.

except you can do different activities under 6F and 72F.

But between 6F and -36F, it means the same. Varity needs to have a use or makes a difference for people, not just for the numbers' sake, don't you think so?

The Inuit have 14 different names for snow, but none for margarita...
