I'll give it a 9-especially along the coasts.

Realistically it would be about 5 because of its vast cold north. Among major cities, I would rate their climates altogether as 8.

It can, but it's still mild for it's latitude. Even Moscow is no colder than Minneapolis, and look how far inland it is. It's quite amazing how strong the effect of the Gulf stream is, it because effects all of the European continent well into Russia.

I give Canada a 2

Vancouver, etc. are liveable (still too cold for me though). The water situation is better than many other countries.

i live in the northern half of the windsor-quebec city corridor, the climate fits me to a t. i like the long cold snowy winters and the 3 months long mostly hot and humid summers are fine too.

nothing beats heading into the woods with my logging tractor on a -10c morning under blue skies , the trees coated with snow.

I give Canada a solid 8 for climate.

Call me crazy, I like cold.

I like not having to doing any gardening from November
until May, hey I admit I'm abit lazy.

Gardening is fun May to end of October but then I'm done,
time to watch football on TV.

I like that there are no bugs late Oct to late April, I hate bugs.

Canada is pretty calm weather wise (other than snow storms),
compared with alot of the world.

Hurricane damage is rare, even bad tornados are not common like
in parts of the USA.

Most of southern Canada have decent summers too,
most days from mid May to mid sepetember I'm out on my patio
enjoying a nice cold drink on my patio. Then it gets cooler,
leaves start changing and I'm enjoying fall, you never get bored in Canada.

Even shoveling the driveway can be fun, I call it forced exercise
