-30C this morning for parts of Southern Ontario... same latitude as Nice, France. Talk about climate fail...
I stand by my original assertion.

Couldn't agree with you more.

What you failed to mention is that its an unseasonal blip in what has been a largely mild winter. Its going up to 3 on Tuesday and 6 on Saturday.. No big deal dude. Everyone knows Canadian weather in the winter can alternate like that. It isn't like France hasn't had an occasional unseasonal cold snap in its history either. That said, yes Canada is colder than France in the winter generally speaking - this is shocking why

Where were you when the U.S East coast got PUMMELLED by one of the worst snow dumps in its history a few weeks back and we were largely unscathed

Fail for being biased.

It's not shocking but just shows how most of Canada is a failure in terms of climate IMO. When was the last time Nice or Marseille hit -30C? Most of Canada is far too cold for the latitude.

Well it depends on what you list as 'fail'

-30 is certainly not the norm and we can count on one hand how often that happened in Southern Ontario this winter. There are other parts of the U.S that also got hit by the cold snap and as I mentioned to another poster, a MUCH larger snow storm a few weeks ago this winter that the GTA has managed to avoid. Other than that and i'm certainly no climatologist but latitude alone isn't going to determine weather right - there are other factors involved. You make the best of things in life. Every country has its 'fail' conditions by default.

Anyway it gave my partner and I an excuse to cuddle up under the sheets and watch a move together.. Not a fail in my books!

I wasn't aware a test was being conducted?

Now let's test as to how climate influences something like a major life-sustaining resource such as WATER!

Anybody care to factor in how much Canada's climate results in our vastly superior access to that little life requirement would add up in the aggregate scoring?

Much of the US is also cold for its latitude in the winter.

And Colorado sometimes gets late summer accumulating snowfalls, which you'd never see in Toronto or Montreal.

Nowhere is perfect.

The forecast for the very coldest American cities and the most inhabitable Canadian cities:

New York, New York: -8/-13 sunny , 2/1 snow, 13/2 rain, 8/0 cloudy, 5/-5 sunny

Chicago, Illinois: -5/-6 snow, 2/-2 snow, 3/-3 snow, 0/-4 cloudy, 4/3 sunny

Minneapolis, Minnesota: -6/-7 snow, 1/-3 cloudy, -3/-8 sunny, 5/3 snow

Denver, Colorado: 13/2 Sunny, 15/4 sunny, 18/3 sunny, 20/6 sunny, 22/5 sunny

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Toronto, Ontario: -10/-11 sunny, 0/0 snow, 2/-2 snow, 2/-13 snow, -5/-8 sunny

Montreal, Quebec : -19/-24 sunny, -6/-7 sunny, 2/-3 snow, 1/-12 sunny, -7/-17 snow

Ottawa, Ontario: -19/-25 sunny, -7/-10 snow, 1/-5 snow, 0/-15 cloudy, -7/-16 snow

Vancouver, British Columbia: 10/7 rain, 10/6 rain, 10/6 sunny, 10/7 rain, 9/4 rain

By the way I am from one of the coldest countries in world. There is nowhere in Canada with a climate even close to Saint Louis or North Carolina which is a true four season climate.

Agreed - take the good with the bad and everything in between! After 54 pages of this thread and I've said it before and will say again, I just don't get the point of it. Everyone knows Canada is cold in the winter.. Everyone knows some of the U.S is also cold, maybe not as cold but cold..Everyone knows its cold in some other countries too in their winter

The sky is blue today is that a fail - i'd rather a pink sky
