Not always Cold in Canada

I live in northern Indiana and went fishing up to Vancouver Island in June and found the weather to be very pleasant. Later I visited in January and while expecting cold and ice etc I was pleasantly surprised to find a very mild climate.

Comparing the winter of Northern Indiana to Vancouver island B.C. I was shocked to find it much warmer and less cold than I had previously thought.

Barry's Response - Yes, the Vancouver Island is the mildest place in Canada in winter. It also has pleasant summers, thus making it one of the most desirable locations in the country.

How does Victoria rank on a scale of 1 to 100

...on a variety of weather parameters (average temperature, rainfall and such). This chart compares Victoria with 99 other largest Canadian cities.

I have been noting the temperature changes in the past few years and I found something remarkable, even you might have noted it too. The climates have started to behave completely differently each time. Sometimes it reaches either extreme’s too.

How about the rest of the year
by: Russ

Sounds nice for winter. How about the rest of the year? Anything going on besides fishing? I might like to visit.

What else besides fishing?
by: Raven

I have never been there. I'm not a fisherman, so I'd like to know what else there is to do there. It's good to know the weather is mild, but what else is there to make it a worthwhile visit?

The Air's a Bit Thin
by: Wally

Actually, I've been to Vancouver Island, although not in January, and it is indeed a beautiful place with a relatively mild climate. This article, though, is a bit "thin" in its content, giving me no real information beyond a vague "it's-not-as-bad-as-I-thought" opinion -- which in itself, if you think about it, is a bit negative. I would prefer to read about the positives, such as what makes Vancouver an attractive place to visit. Or at a minimum, I would like to get some actual data, since "mild" weather is pretty relative. How about some actual temperatures, or monthly averages?
