Good thing the Arctic isn't getting warmer. If it's above 0C on Cape Columbia, the pole is melting. Fortunately, it's as cold as Kelowna, up there.

Well it's bound to be relatively warm at this time of year with 24 hour sunshine, but that will come to a sudden change in a month or so.

That is going to happen with 5 solid months of blazing sunshine, but you pay for it from October until February.

Maybe, it didn't used to get above zero? If it did, CFB Alert would have sunk into the thawed permafrost goo decades ago.

We could do it but it would take a radical re-think of what Canada really is.

Generally speaking about 28 frost free days (at a stretch) annually.
