It's more continental than some place in the British Isles, though, with more land surrounding it.

Wow, Terrace is a great climate, almost perfect temperatures. Don't like the rainfall pattern though.

Summers too dry for you?! Its sunshine is probably a bit underestimated, as it has mountains blocking the horizon, like most of the west coast of BC.

I prefer dry winters and wetter summers, much like Scandinavia and eastern Europe. All that precipitation suggests that rain is not uncommon in winter, and during summer, I prefer my rainfall to be in the form of heavy convective showers or larger systems such as MCS's.

Forecast shows a chance of T-storms for Terrace:

Terrace, British Columbia Weather Forecast from Weather Underground

A few days in the 80s. While it probably gets some winter rain, the snowfall is so heavy it'd soon follow, I'd imagine the ground is usually covered with deep snow. One benefit of wet winters and dry summers, is the summers are sunnier while the winters snowier. It's the west coast of North America, so drier summers are the norm.

This area is entirely native, but the Anglican church converted the locals:

Just looks very random in the photos of that place, when reading, with the totem poles. Interesting cultural combination. But no, sorry, not weather related.
