It's whiter in Canada, most of the year.

At almost 300 posts long i can imagine why you missed it, but I did say this earlier in this mammoth

I think its true, it may not be the real reason, but I would bet it has an influence in many people's decision.

It will have an influence in the OP's decision to go to live in Spain as well

I cannot believe the space you guys have given to the O/P in this thread. His original post was evidently an attempt to goad and get a reaction - and he got that in spades.

I guess all posts are there to get reaction and some answers are designed to goad people.

Speaking out of some experience - Canadian men rock the house, quite literally.

Australia is being engulfed by raging fires and the water levels are not high enough to deal with them, people are fleeing int the outback and an uncertain future.

The U.S has lost much of its' mid western grain belt due to higher temperatures and are dependent upon imports from Canada, which are reporting record yields due to more available land for farming.

Asia reports record fatalities due to the flooding at the Three Gorges Dam and air quality that is unbreathable.

The US/Canada are threatening to sink any ships trying to enter their ports, all Air Ports are closed, the Mexican border also.

Canada, faced with elevated temperatures are exporting some of the vast resources found under the ice Caps and utilising the now open North West Passage to transport these materials.

Canada continues to enjoy an abundance of fresh Water, the population still under 40 million due to a freeze on Immigration in 2057.

Why Canada, Dooms Day, take your poison???

With due recognition to Gore and An Inconvenient Truth.
Stop sniffing BBC...it's bad for you y'know

Today's decision affects your children and their children, and sometimes you give up stuff so that future generations may benefit.
