It's basically a tie. These Canada/Australia threads are always neck and neck.

Canada is Australia north, Australia is Canada south.

I wonder what the largest city in the world is that has no real summer (think 15C maximums or less) and very cold winters?

There are places like the west coast of Norway and Iceland and La Paz in Bolivia that don't really warm up in the summer, but their winters aren't what I would call extremely cold.

Any ideas people?
Norilsk in Russia is the coldest place in the world with more 100,000 people. The only reason it exists is for mining the huge nickel deposits in the area

Oh lord i'm more than aware of that.... It all comes down to preference... For some people a few months of winter weather will be a dealbreaker - for alot of people it simply won't be - especially if they know that few months of winter is mitigated by spring, summer and fall... They adapt and move on and actually enjoy and take advantage of the variety ie buildings a snowman, having a snowball fight - going tobogganning or sking - playing hockey etc.. There's also something magical at Christmas when there is some snow on the ground and you take part in something like the Seasonal Cavalcade of lights.. Chestnuts roasting by an open fire lalala.. Some people will fall in love with places like Toronto, New York, Montreal, Chicago, Stockholm etc because to them the world doesn't revolve around year round hot weather...
