Canadians should brace for coldest winter in almost 15 years: forecast

(Canadian Press)
TORONTO - Environment Canada says it appears the country will have to endure its coldest winter in almost 15 years as everyone is reminded what a real Canadian winter feels like.

Senior climatologist David Phillips says Canada has had a number of warmer than normal winters in recent years, but this December through February is forecast to be one of the harshest in recent memory.

With the exception of a small pocket in southern Ontario, the entire country is coloured blue for colder than normal on Environment Canada's weather map.

Precipitation forecasts are less reliable, but Phillips says the colder winter will likely result in a lot of white Christmas' across the country.

Last year, a number of traditionally cold and snow-covered cities like Quebec City, Ottawa and Timmins, Ont., had their first green Christmas in decades.

Phillips says a cold winter with lots of snow is good for the economy, and will likely push people into doing their Christmas shopping and booking holidays to escape the cold.

"I always think it's good for the economy when weather is behaving like it should, when winters are cold and summers are hot," he said.

"With the Canadian dollar the way it is and with this colder than normal weather, it very well may be that the busiest people in the country are travel agents."

Phillips says the forecast for cold weather is being triggered by La Nina, a period of lower than normal temperatures in the Pacific Ocean.

Ah, yet more Global Warming! The IPCC, NDP, Davids Suzuki, Phillips et al should be made to march through downtown Winnipeg in their Birkenstocks and loin cloths until they recant, repent and relent. Complete idiocy. - McL

The Wizard of Oz

At the U2 concert in Sydney, lead singer Bono asks the audience for some quiet. Then in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands. Holding the audience in total silence, he says into the microphone, "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies." An Aussie voice from near the front pierces the silence, "Well, stop f*ing clapping, ya dick'ead."

Tiresome Ian Tambyn

Where does Ian Tamblyn work? Where does his income or money come from? Is it inherited wealth? Is that why he is such a ditzy Marxist debutante? Has he worked one day in his life? Penthouse socialist finger wagging is tiresome Ian, shaddup. Grow up!

This message brought to you by somebody who is sick of your sanctimonious socialist sermonizing. Ram it.

English Quebec: Is there one left?

Terry Di Monte, CHOM-FM DJ and Montreal pop broadcaster for decades did his last show yesterday and ran away to Calgary like 700,000 other English Quebeckers have since 1976.

All the English left. They'd rather switch than fight.

And I bet every last one of them still votes Liberal and still adheres to the Trudeau myth of a fictitious place called Canada.

"Just watch me....move."

(Bitter laughter)
