But I think due to the nice Canadian nature Poles like it.
:) I had understood it to be 'the nice nature of Canadians' but I see my bias is showing. :) Flora and fauna is quite nice too, yes.
It seems strange to me that people have not gotten used to the snowy conditions by now.
I wonder if that might be because you're in Toronto. Toronto hardly ever gets any serious snowfalls. People are not used to driving in it. Plus, the melting snow can be more slippery than a good 10 cm of it. Do you think that might be the case?
which a lot of people are simply scared off here.
You've noticed this? Really? There are more automatic cars here than in Europe, or so I am told, but I assumed it was because the US had flooded the market for so long. Scared? Hmmmmm, interesting.
