Come on down, not only do we allow illegals we are giving them driver's licenses, free education and money to have kids.

Some of the highland cities in Latin America meet that criteria. Lima also comes close.

I find it strange that most Canadians only focus on summer or winter as if those are the only 2 seasons. It makes sense I guess because spring and fall are very short in most of Canada.

Dawson City, Yukon has averaged 14F/8C above normal so far this year. If Vancouver were 14F above normal, it would be experiencing a winter typically found in Tallahassee, Florida. Bring on the global warming! No more fails.

that's not strange but winter and autumn by definition are transitional and therefore pleasant seasons in terms of thermal comfort. If summer is not too hot and winter not too cold, how bad can the months between them be?


Spring is probably short in Canada - central Canada specifically, but autumn is not that short. At least half of September, entire October and good chunk of October even some days in November are autumn like temperature - say 10-18 degrees. Spring is indeed short - today it was snowing, and I bet in four weeks' time the trees will turn green with people in their Tshirts on the street. It is short because the f**king winter is never ending.


South America indeed has good weather in general (I don't use Latin America because the US to me is very close to being part of it whether in terms of language or wealth gap). I have been to the very southern tip of Argentina and even that was not as cold as Toronto in the winter.

Clearly! A place that doesn't get above 15 degrees on average in any month of the year - total and complete weather fail!

Average highs in July and August are 19 degrees and not 15. I agree it's more spring like than summer like. For its latitude it's pretty good. At 56 latitude in parts of Canada at low elevation you have Arctic Tundra where trees can't even grow... pick your poison indeed.

19 is still pretty low.. If Toronto had high's of only 19 (esp in july/august) in the summer it'd be a big bummer to me. Sorry, big fail!
I also really don't care about latitude, I care about the ambient weather of a place. If its sucks 4 or 5 months of the year it better be good the rest. Kinda sucky all year just sucks. Sorry Edinburgh- Fail! Other cities would fall along Edinburgh's lines too if in what is supposed to be hot summer months they are only kinda/sorta hot.. Fail to them too!

Edinburgh's climate isn't very good in an absolute sense IMO but it has the advantage that at no point during the year is it ever really dangerous unlike most of Canada in winter. I'd categorize Edinburgh's weather as spring like most of the year which can be pleasant for some.

I think categorizing Canada's weather as 'dangerous' is a stretch. Most deaths are probably attributed to people not driving according to the weather conditions as opposed to the weather itself.. Outside of driving deaths - What a few dozen people die in Avalanche's? How many people in Canada die from cold weather exposure?

Besides, there are a plethora of nations in the world that have year round hot weather where people die from not just the hot weather, but also from a host of other natural phenomena that are far more dangerous than what we're faced with here. When was the last time 350 people were killed in a Volcanic eruption in Canada, or scores/hundreds killed in Hurricanes or Typhoons or thousands of people killed in an earthquakes or or hundreds of thousands killed by a tsunami? - In Canada? Road fatalities, try India for size. Canada dangerous LOL.....
