I love the fact that it gets 'too cold' in Canada, or the fact that we get 'snow' is such an amazement! Yes Canada is notorious for the above mentioned facts, BUT, aren't there 4 seasons in a year? Canada enjoys each. Doesn't 3/4 of the States get the 4 seasons as well? I'm a proud Canadian who hates snow and cold weather. However, I would never leave for the sake of running away from it. I'll take Canadian weather anyday. I've been to Sweden, Malmo and Norkopping (sp?), and to tell you the truth, they weren't too wonderful in the summer (2 months).
As for the whole celsius debate, my cousins lived in Canada for most of their lives, about 5 years ago, they moved to Jacksonville, FL and have already forgotten our whole temperature system. However, they're still Canadian in the sense that some Jacksonville residents find their 'accents' amusing. Apparently we say 'about' as 'aboot' and 'coupons' differently. LoL.
This whole issue is amusing to me because take an American and a Canadian, have them walk down a street, and you can't tell the difference between the two.
