Ha... yes, and we all live in igloos.But Canada only has one climate zone - COLD!
I actually visited your city back in the '90's while working in Renton/Everett on a Boeing project. My wife and I took a hydrofoil ferry to Victoria to spend the day. It was the cleanest city I've ever seen, reminding us more of a theme park than a working city. I do recall most of the coastal area west of the Cascades has a tropical rainforest climate.Ha... yes, and we all live in igloos.
Actually I happen to live in Canada's banana belt, warmer than a lot of the states... we might get 2 or 3 light snow falls in a winter, and it usually melts away within a day or two. No snow at all this winter; not unusual. We've had nice spring weather and temps, and blossoms on the trees, since January... actually the blossoms are pretty much all done now.
