Your assertion that Canada is a fail because it has winter would have to include many other countries around the world who also have winters. If year round summer conditions are what you need you certainly have picked a bad choice in Canada.
We are about to start another long cold winter heres something you can work on to keep you busy=

To add/
I guess we'll just have to accept the fact that Canada is a loser country because it is subjected to a season of winter..

It pisses me off, too, because in January I dig the dogs out from under the snow, and take the sled down to the river. I get extremely irritated, or, probably jealous is the right word, looking north through the whiteout conditions to Detroit with it's sunshine, people boating on their side of the international boundary, playing tennis and all those other activities that can only be done outdoors.......



Why can't we be so lucky?

Your post reminds me of the time I flew from Detroit to Buffalo on a Northwest DC-9 (wasn't that long ago man, things change fast in the aviation industry!).. Anyway it was in January or February and needless to say Buffalo had a pretty significant layer of snow on the ground.. When I got to my car at the parking lot, I had to clear off a good 12 cm's of snow off it. The roads were pretty bad and there was still a decent crop of snow coming down.

Needless to say by the time I crossed to border the skies were clearing and so were the roads. The GTA - roads bare and dry

Of course - it was more directed at Deneb Teckeee.. He just has a difficult time accepting reality lol.. You'd get it if you read the 46 useless pages of this thread.

Why would I add Hawaii, but ignore Alaska? If you add both, the difference between northern Alaska and Hawaii is more than 50 degrees. Canada does not cover over 50 degrees latitude. If the most southern point is at about 41, you're saying that the northernmost point of Canada is beyond the north pole.

Not very often. Even the Yukon can get near 18 in winter. Burwash, Yukon was 16.5C in January 2014. Further south, Alberta often gets over 20 during the winter. 25 is about the limit though. A few spots in Alberta and BC have done that in the winter. eg. Grand Forks, BC.

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.
I never said anywhere averages 25 in the winter in Canada. -20 to -60 is just as diverse temperaturewise as 20 to 60.

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?
There's a massive difference between 6F and -36F. Huge. Have you tried to go downhill skiing in -36 weather? Or play pond hockey? The lungs burn big time. It hardly ever gets to 6F here in BC. It's usually around freezing, which is perfect for me. Much better than 90F. I hate heat.
