Canada is Too Cold.
(Montreal, Quebec, Canada)
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

Why do we have such a cold reputation?
Canada's cold climate is caused by its northern location, diverse topography, and the Arctic air masses that can move in during the winter.
Because Canada is a northern country with a high latitude, it's cold. Canada is Too Cold for some people. Most of Canada is above the 45th parallel, halfway between the Equator and the North Pole. Because of that, the country gets less direct sunlight and the rays that do reach the ground are more spread out.
The country is also known for its vast landmass and varied topography, including mountain ranges, plains, and lakes. Depending on the region, these features affect the country's climate. Due to the ocean's moderating effects, coastal regions have milder temperatures, whereas inland regions have more extreme fluctuations.
During the winter months, Arctic air masses can move southward into the populated regions of Canada, bringing freezing temperatures and snowfall. Cold air masses form over the Arctic region and are carried south by prevailing winds.
