Canada is a TINY country, comprising less than 0.5% of the world's population. The peoples of the two largest countries in the world account for over 30% of the world's population and don't have either the freedom or the means to select a climate more to their tastes.

Canadian scientists have to work hard to learn how to tilt the Earth's axis, and Canada will be on the Equator. Theoretically it is possible.

For Canada, global warming might actually be a good thing

I don't mind snow and cold if it's short and not super freezing like -20. Also If there wasn't wind chill as well. 2-3 months of snowy, winter weather with no temperatures below -10 and with a few days above 0 would be my ideal. Sadly no climate in the world has this.

I can't comment about no where in the world having that climate, but you can have both in Vancouver if you travel just a bit.
It never gets to -20 C here, hardly ever any snow...unless you head up the North Shore Mountains.

So people here can get their snow fix. I could leave my house right now where it's currently 9 C and bright, and within less than 30 minutes ( I live downtown ) be surrounded by snow. Stay a bit, head home.

It was 9C and sunny in Vancouver. In Mission and Abbotsford its 4C and Rainy. And there might be snow.

You're also right. There's actually plenty of places that have snowy winters that are colder than 0 but warmer than -10. Amsterdam's a perfect example of this. Many places in northwest Europe have this climate. Berlin is a bit more extreme temperatures it can get to -20 especially with the winch on humidity though.

I love snow when it's like -2 or colder. It's better if it's colder out when it snows because trust me I hate it when it rains right after because then it just makes a huge mess on the roads and the snow was practically useless because then it turns into slush I would want like 30 cm of snow and then the temperatures drop down to like -12 and be sunny or cloudy or whatever but cold enough to keep the snow on the ground not have rainfall right after it. I like this though to stay on the ground for at least a week I would like two weeks actually
