Canada is fine. Most of my forever alone brethren tuned out not to be actual forever alones although they were pushing scary close to 40 before getting happily married in some cases and not to single mothers or girls with lower 1-10 ratings. Of the ones who still are forever alones, they are the hard cases. I know a guy who couldn't get laid in a Bangkok brother with 50K Bhat strapped to his chest he is so terrified of women.
Aside from the vag, it is a pretty good place to live. Sure we have apartheid with special non indian taxes and a few other annoying things but.
we don't have the chav thing of jolly old England and our Pakis don't seem to be as keen on pimping out 11 year old girls under the protection of the legal and social work system.
We don't line up to suck priest ahem candy sticks like they still do in Ireland.
The country isn't as full of Jebus cultists as the US, we got them and many others are down with Jebus but it doesn't intrude nearly as much into politics as the US and they tend to not be extremist. Even Alberta is nowhere near the bible belt.
I suppose Australia would be on par with Canada, but I live here and know here so meh. Also I don't like the aussie accent.
Ditto New Zealand.
I could go beyond but overall it is pretty good.
But Manitoba, hell to the no.
For those who don't like cold, snowy weather, Canada can be like a living hell! The winters in Canada range from snowing in early September to as late as late June in the south to year round with 40s and even 30s high temperatures in July up north. Canada is one place where, not will you never, ever see a single palm tree (no, not even a Musa Basjoo) planted in the ground outside, but in certain areas, even the Eastern White Pine and Colorado Spruce will not thrive, either. Not to mention in the northern areas, not only do January temps reach as low as 60 below zero, but the sun can shine as little as 3 hours all day. North of the Arctic Circle and you will get no sunshine at all in mid winter, though areas within a couple hundred miles or so of the Arctic Circle can get some twilight during mid winter. But up around Quttinirpaaq National Park and northward, even the twilight ceases around mid winter, and you have literally 24 hours of solid polar night a day.
This is a collection of mostly lies.
In the South [Windsor to Quebec City] and the West Coast [Vancouver, Victoria] it doesn't start snowing in Early September. Usually it isn't till November or December and where I am at we often get Christmas with no snow cover.
I've been here almost 50 years in 3 provinces and have never seen 60 below temps or 3 hours a day. The about worse is about -30C or -22F. Yeah it gets brutal cold up north but almost nobody lives in the territories and even places with bitter cold like Edmonton to Winterpig... well you don't have to live there, much like you don't have to live in central Alaska to live in the US.
The vast vast majority of the population lives along the US border, I'd guess less than 1 in 5 to 10K people live above the Arctic circle and aside from one road you can't even drive up there from the south.
Really, what's next, assuming that everyone is like Paul Bernardo?
I would have an impossible time believing that Quebec City and Windsor don't get snow until November or December. Northern Wisconsin in the USA has seen snow as early as the first week of October. Areas around Hudson Bay especially have a lot of tundra, and Baker Lake for instance sees average January highs around Minus 17 Fahrenheit with an all time record low of Minus 59 Fahrenheit. In the town of Churchill, Manitoba, on the southwest shores of Hudson Bay, even the tremendously hardy Black Spruce (Picea mariana) has a tremendously hard time thriving! Not only does permafrost hinder their roots, but northerly winds are so cold that they kill all windward growth on the trees, leaving them all flagged and lopsided, all of their branches pointing south instead of in all directions. Literally, even the Black Spruce can not form the typical symmetrical cone shape so common with a typical spruce in Churchill, Manitoba, only a nearly flat vertical flag shape pointing south.
Yeah I've only lived smack dab in the middle of the Winsdor Quebec corridor for over 2.5 decades and lived SW of Toronto for another 4. What do I know.
This is what you said
"The winters in Canada range from snowing in early September to as late as late June in the south to year round with 40s and even 30s high temperatures in July up north"
Now you are saying
"Northern Wisconsin in the USA has seen snow as early as the first week of October. "
Yeah, well Florida has seen snow also but one can't go around saying that Florida is a snowy place.
It might have snowed once in my life in September but never early Sept, ditto for June. A once in a lifetime event is not exactly what you were suggesting.
Also your temp suggestions are just off the wall nuts.
Actually this Winter it's been warm as f**k, it just snowed around here but it lasted on the ground less than a day and the ground has been clear for about a month. However again, exception.
Baker Lake [I had to look that up[ Hudson Bay. Again almost nobody lives there, aside from one road up to Raddison you can't even drive there.
I guess you can say the climate in the US is just as bad because of Alaska. I've already explained this to you and anyone with even the slightest clue about Canada knows that the climate of the territories and the high north of Quebec and Ontario has nothing to do with the climate along the 401 or in Lotus Land.
But hey, you converted me. The Unitied States is covered with dairy farms, rolling hills, with small mountains and small towns of no more than 50K people and there are an aweful lot of Hippies and Socialists with almost no white people. No matter what evidence you point to as a counter I'll keep bringing up Vermont. That is how stupid you sound. But New York. Nope Vermont. But the Deserts in the SW, nope Vermont. Ya see.
Also Palm Trees in Vancouver.
Granted it is a very small part of Canada but by your logic, one example of something in a Country means that it applies to the whole country so you must admit that Canada is actually a Palm Tree covered tropical paradise.
Also Permafrost. I've lived in Quebec, Ontario and Newfoundland for 4.5 decades. I've been from one end of the country to the other, even north of Edmonton. I've never ever once been to a place with Permafrost. Sure lots of the North have Permafrost, places that almost nobody lives or goes to even as a tourist.
Please, stop being such an American.
