Listening to people who claim Toronto's summer is so hot and humid is like someone from Manitoba hearing people complaining Seattle's winter being frigid.

"It is not th heat, it is the humidity", "Toronto is experiencing a heatwave hitting 32C three days in a row". The entire world is laughing at such news every summer.
Okay so other places in the world are even more humid and need AC more. How in the world does that mean our summers still can't be disgustingly humid at times?

"It's cold out today!" - "Shut up, it's colder in Barrow!" Who gives a flying ****?

In Shanghai "It's hot today!" - "Shut up, it's hotter in Dasht-e Lut!"

Ridiculous.

Average July high in Toronto is probably more like 27C rather than 25C in mid-summer. Humidity is quite high, too, so it can feel pretty muggy, but of course not usually as hot as the South.

I've actually had Africans who live here in my city (similar summers to Toronto) that a hot summer here is more stifling and suffocating than a summer "back home".

That wouldn't surprise me if they came from somewhere like Nairobi which isn't even hot at all.

All of the Africans I know are from various countries in west Africa or from the Congo in central Africa. Places where the average maximum is around 30C.

There are definitely summer days in southern Ontario and southern Quebec over 30C
and humid that feel like Texas (or the tropics), I've been to Texas in summer and there a few days
every summer that feel like I'm in Dallas or Houston and just as uncomfortable
Sure the average is only about 27C but that's because of "below normal" cool summer days
in low 20s that drag down the average.
I live in Burlington and our average July high is 28C (similar to Windsor),
we average 19.7 days above 30C annually, Windsor 21 days, even Montreal
and Ottawa probably average close to 15 days.

not riduculous at all.

Toronto's summer (hardly any days above 33C) is very mild by world standards. It is not "there are other place that are hotter". I guess in terms of heat, Toronto's summer probably will sit at the 25 percentile, which means 75% of wold population have hotter summers.

It is completely different from your Barrow or Da****-whatever example.

By the way, Barrow, AK right now is -16C, while Toronto is -19C. Not a good example.
