I've even seen days in the winter in the past when Vancouver was warmer than Orlando

Sure, you can always find a random day in which San Diego is slightly cooler than Vancouver, but you'll never find a day in which it's 22 in Vancouver and 3 in San Diego. You will, however, find many, many days that are the opposite.
The Vancouver airport is right near the water. Inland just a little bit, say at the Abbotsford airport was 26 yesterday, and is forecast to be similar today.

that is not very unusual at all. I remember in 2010 winter I went to Orlando around Christmas and it was freezing, under 10 degrees, and I wished I had brought my down jacket.


There is no guaranteed warm weather in Orlando. It is not coastal California.

Anyone can get skin cancer... it depends on a number of factors.
Canada has bushfires too. The BC interior gets them every year where people lose their homes and can even die. It's just not as widespread as Australia but they most certainly occur.
The bushfire fatality issue is only partly about climate; its as much (more possibly) about people living in heavily forested areas, with their houses in very close contact with forests and with limited access to get in and out. If you look at where those fatalities occurred, they are for the most part not in particularly hot or windy parts of Australia.

As for skin cancer, temperate, often cold and usually wet New Zealand now has higher rates of serious invasive skin cancer than does warm and sunny Australia. New Zealand has world's worst rate for invasive melanomas, overtaking Australia - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Actually it was 22C in Vancouver's downtown, and 26C where I was today, inland.

Also, my point wasn't about Vancouver's climate being better than San Diego, but how people sometimes assume that because Vancouver is in Canada, and much further north than San Diego, that even if your error about the 1 degree difference were true, THAT would still surprise some people because they would automatically thing San Diego should be MUCH warmer ALL year than Vancouver.

What do you know, parts of Calgary did see 27 today.

Wrong. Parts of Alberta, the usual suspects were 27 today (Lethbridge, Vauxhall, etc.), but not Calgary. It's elevation is too high.

P.S. Top 10 warmest places in Canada today:

1 Enchant, Alberta = 28.7 C
2 Vauxhall, Alberta = 28.4 C
3 Lytton, BC = 28.3 C
4 Bow Island, Alberta = 27.8 C
4 Grassy Lake, Alberta = 27.8 C
6 Warfield, BC = 27.7 C
7 Barnwell, Alberta = 27.6 C
7 Fincastle, Alberta = 27.6 C
9 ********, BC = 27.4 C
9 Lillooet, BC = 27.4 C

Edit: WTF!? Why does City-Data bleep out Ashcroft!!???

Second best country in the world with milder climate in BC. Very successful country and a popular country, indeed!

I had the same problem on a thread a year or two ago. The only thing I could come up with, is that CD blocks swear words, and for some reason
it thinks poor little ******** is one of them.
