Sightseeing in Canada

Sightseeing in Canada

I've been to the Canada few years ago and traveled all around the country in two weeks. I really enjoyed the climate and it was much warmer than I was led to believe. I was basically expecting to freeze to death and had brought many multilayered clothing but I hardly needed any. I don't know whether that is to global warming or something else but it did feel weird.

I was mainly visiting the areas around great Lakes, moving between the cities every two or three day. Fro what I saw, I think it would be beautiful to live there. Still, it is probably hard once the real winter starts as I was there during summertime. I reckon life around that time is definitely not easy.

Barry's Response - We have summers too. In populated areas, they're usually not much different from summers in most places in the US and Europe. Compare climate averages at This website is awesome.

We learn to get by in Canada. I live a little farther north, in Calgary, but the temperature range can be quite similar. Thanks for your input.

In the first place, I would like to emphasize that experiences such as the one you had in Ontario can often challenge our preconceived notions and assumptions.

You were pleasantly surprised by the weather and found it warmer than you expected. I think this raises an interesting point about the subjective nature of expectations and how firsthand experience shapes our perspectives.

Ontario, being a large province in Canada, has a variety of climates. Ontario's climate can vary significantly depending on the region and the time of year. There are four distinct seasons in Ontario, with warm summers and cold winters. Temperature fluctuations and weather patterns can vary across the province, though.

You may have encountered a milder period or experienced specific weather patterns that contributed to the relatively warmer temperatures during your visit. Geographic location, proximity to bodies of water, prevailing winds, and atmospheric conditions can influence climate.

It's important to acknowledge that weather patterns are subject to change over time and can exhibit considerable variability. Climate is a long-term average of weather patterns, influenced by global and regional factors like greenhouse gas emissions, ocean currents, and solar radiation. Though your experience in Ontario may have been warmer than expected, it doesn't negate the broader scientific understanding of climate change.

The study of climate change needs to distinguish between weather events and long-term trends. Weather events can deviate from the norm, and they don't necessarily show us how the climate works. Global and regional climate patterns change over time due to significant and sustained changes.

In order to understand climate better, we need to look at a lot of data, scientific research, and long-term trends. As a result, we can make informed decisions and deal with climate change responsibly.

It's important to consider the broader context of climate science and the long-term trends associated with climate change, even though your experience in Ontario may have challenged your expectations. We can better understand the complexities of climate and its implications for the world if we examine the scientific evidence and engage in meaningful dialogue.

Needs more detail

With all due respect this article is very poorly written. It is a very cursory overview of your trip and doesn't delve into any detail concerning the rich diversity and experiences any visitor to Canada should be able to document.

From Barry - Did you a great time in Canada? In particular, probably enjoyed visiting Hogtown exploring the cities, and eating delicious food. Maybe you got to experience some unique cultural activities like the Aboriginal celebration. That would have been a blast!

I find this article interesting. It needs some more detail. Where are the places you went? Also it is not always cold in Canada like people assume. That really bugs me.

From Barry - Canada has a variety of climates, from temperate coastal regions to frigid Arctic tundra. There have been times when the southernmost parts of Canada have had higher temperatures than some parts of the U.S.
