Very interesting that Lloydminster, SK is in 3rd but Lloydminster, AB (the larger part of town) is nowhere to be found. The stats for Grand Prairie are also quite surprising to me.

^ #69 ironically

Those are CA/CMA rankings not actual city/town rankings aren't they? Explains why a lot of great places aren't actually on the list.

Leamington. lol. I'll never understand it. It's 45 minutes away and I've been there MANY times. It is probably one of the 'lesser' nice places to live I've ever been to in Canada.

"Windsor: Days below 0C: 122.8" LOL! Not even close.

What makes you say that about Leamington? Given all the other towns I've been to of that size, Leamington has a lot to offer.

The days below 0C stat for Windsor seems right to me.

Leamington is not very wealthy. It has a large downtown for its size I'll give it that.
It's a farming town with a lot of flaws. It has very little to offer...hence why most Leamington people come to Windsor for thrills and giggles.

Windsor's average January temperature is 0.7 degrees Celcius.
Anything before and after January (with the exception of February sometimes would be warmer).
So Windsor's average days below 0 would be about 80-90 days.

When you compare Leamington to other towns its size though, it's pretty good. It has the best climate in the province and Lake Erie and Point Pelee for recreation. A very diverse population too, partly thanks to the Mexicans.

For the temperatures, they count any day where the temp falls below 0C (even if it only happens in the middle of the night). The average nighttime temp in early April is near 0 so those would count too.

Theymean days where the termperature goes below 0. Thunder Bay has gone below 0 at least 10 times this month. Though it only went down to like -0.1, still, that counts. If you add the days below 0 and days above 10 together you'd probably something in the neighbourhood of 450 days. :p

^ Click on the "overview" heading, it explains the criteria they used.

They are talking about days when the temperature falls below zero at some point, not days when the temperature fails to get above zero. There is a big difference.

People like to look at lists but the fact is that these are pretty unrealistic. I'd barely even heard of this small town previously. Why would I move somewhere like that? Few people are willing to live in small towns far away from real cities.

'Few people are willing to live in small towns far away from real cities.'

It's, like, 20 minutes from Windsor. Hop over the border and you're in a city that's bigger than Toronto. (thought it doesnt look like it is, does it?)

Toronto is about three times larger than Detroit bud.
