Canada is Too Cold.

I usually check the ''weather network'', but usually in the winter you can expect the same thing: Cold, intense cold, snow. The long-term forcast is good for giving your self hope that their may be a warm day coming. Usually though checking the weather makes me sad becasue it just seems likes weeks and weeks of -15 C.


Canadian summer is too brief. I don't know why this place is inhabited, nor why I live here. Montreal is very cold. Vancouver is much more agreable. No 4 feet of snow for six months.
I am shocked still when it reaches -27. Outdoor birds, dogs, cats all survive this. (well some don't)

Barry's Response - Sebbifer: Be grateful you don't live in Winnipeg. It seems to occasionally have the coldest weather Canada sees anywhere.

Always Too Cold NEW
by: Anonymous

I have lived (and was born here) most of my life, and the one thing about this country, is it is just too cold most of the time, sure there are a few months (very few) we call summer, but overall, it is just a cold country.

Summer too short
by: ColdMontreal

Summer is too short. Winter is too long, too cold. Heating bills are BIG. Been living here all my life (50yrs). Anyone who disagrees, please prove me wrong. Plan to leave for something warmer when I retire from work.

Barry's Response - I think I know a snowman or two who might dispute your comments.

Brutal cold -- the ultimate border patrol
by: Anonymous

I'd like to say, first, that I adore Canada and Canadians. The country is gorgeous, the people are polite and charming, and the government actually takes care of its people.

I'd move to Canada in a heartbeat, if only the climate were better. I can't even imagine living so close to the Arctic Circle and enduring such long, miserable winters.

I'm frightened by the thought of living in northern U.S. places such as Michigan, Minnesota, the northern New England states, or upstate New York. Well, Canada is north of all those places, colder and more severe.

Canada exceptionaly cold
by: buckmclean

Canada is much too cold for most people's tastes. I have lived here all my life, and travelled quite a bit. I believe most native Canadians don't realize that the vast majority of the world's population does not live in such a restrictive climate. They are simply unaware that the weather is much more comfortable almost everywhere else. This is a statistical fact, not just opinion. Winters are long and very extreme, summers are very short, and the spring and fall seasons are almost non existant most years. There is a very good reason why any retiree who can afford it will spend the winters in the warmer parts of the U.S. If I could find a way, I would as well.

canadian ice
by: mubarak

Well, its quite amazing on having a glance on the article . It reveals that the summer is too short there and always remains cold and ice every where.
But it is the creators choice and we can't change it to hot climate. But there may be alternatives for controlling ourselves from that cold by having
woolen clothes and etc.

Canadian Winters
by: Anonymous

This article is poorly written and has spelling errors. It really doesn't say much more than the fact that winter is cold. Well, true. It has been for quite some time now. I don't think I would read anything else written here. If I was searching for information on Canadian winters I think I'd like a few more facts and not as much whining.

Barry's Response - Whaddya expect...tryin' to type with frozen fingers.
