In previous poll "the warmest city in UK vs warmest in Germany" the German city won with around 2/3 votes.
Lets see if it can win with the warmest city in Canada.

Osoyoos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Karlsruhe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Average yearly high temperature is identical in both cities at 15.8c

Osoyoos has higher temps during the summer, and lower temps during the winter which is what I prefer.

I'll trade cooler summers for warmer winters ( and do - I live in Van after all, but could easily live elsewhere in Canada ), and certainly Karlsruhe is an upgrade compared to both Osoyoos and Van, so Kalsruhe.

Both are good climates, but I like Osoyoos better.

Karlsruhe I think it gets more thunderstorms and is more humid in summer and has milder winters.

All of what you say is probably true but...

I prefer Osoyoos climate.

It has longer sunnier summers, less humidity (which is a big plus). Warms up quickly in spring too.

I went out of my way to check out Osoyoos and was glad I did.
Beautiful location with mountains and lake (good swimming in the warmest lake in Canada).
I could live there easily, some day I just might

As a side note, technically Osoyoos does not have the warmest climate in Canada,
warmest summer maybe but a few other locations in coastal BC
have slightly warmer average annual temps, including Vancouver (downtown/harbour) 11c+
also Powell River and another weather station near Chilliwack at US border near Sumas,WA

Karlsruhe for the milder winters. If I could combine Karlsruhe winters and Osoyoos summers.. I'd prefer that
