Canada's Climate

Recently, someone posted here an item about Canada's southernmost point. 
This was in reference to the generalized impression that all of Canada is 
within a climatic zone something like arctic tundra.
No, it's not.
For the record, Point Pelee (this is the correct spelling) is the most 
southern point of the Canadian mainland. It extends out into Lake Erie as 
a sandy peninsula that is designated as a National Park. This is a major 
stopover point in the annual spring and fall bird migration. Over 300 
species of birds have been counted in the park. It also provides a 
nesting ground for 90 species of birds including the great horned owl and 
the great blue heron. Park visting is year round, you can call 519-322-2365 
for more info.
The southernmost point is at the same latitude as northern California.
So, anyway, my point here is most Canadians live in a relatively narrow 
geographical band within about 150 miles of the US border in various 
climatic zones that are similar to many of the types found in the US.
End of geographical digression. :>
