They say feminism in Canada is worse than in the USA, and that the dating scene is worse in Canada than it is in the USA. But there is another reason to avoid Canada; the long, cold, and wicked winters.
Canadian winters can be as cold as in Siberia. Snow can fall as late as June and as early as August, sometimes it even snows in July! Winter can see temperatures as cold as the Negative 60s Fahrenheit with wind chills into the Negative 100s Fahrenheit. Common fabrics offer practically no protection from such intense cold. Some of Canada even gets what is known as polar night, where the sun stays below the horizon for 24 hours a day. You might get a slight bit of twilight for maybe an hour or two. Much of the northern half of Canada in fact is tundra. Even as far south as the southern shores of Hudson Bay, one of the cold-hardiest trees in the world, the Black Spruce, only barely clings to life as the cold and brutal winters maim and deform the trees. Numerous black spruces in the Churchill area on Hudson Bay are frost pruned and flagged with all branches pointing south and only bare trunks facing west, north, and east. Some have even been killed outright by the frosty winds off the bay. Common evergreens such as the Eastern White Pine, the Colorado Blue Spruce, the Jack Pine, and the Austrian Pine don't even stand the slightest chance against the brutal cold winds that deform the Black Spruce.
I survived a Calgarian winter. It was so beautiful to see the landscape and country side of Calgary in the wintertime and snow for miles!!!! I had not freezed to death. Maybe because I used to be a BHM (think of a male version of a BBW) (Big handsome man) at 6'3" at 325 lmao!
