Yes we're up there but we also live in a country that needs a lot of heat during a lot of the year.

blah blah blah the overwhelming majority of the Canadian population lives within 100km of the US border so the excuse about frozen north temperatures really doesn't cut a lot of ice (no pun intended).  What portion of the Canadian population lives in Ontario's "Golden Triangle" and BC's Lower Mainland and Quebec's greater Montreal area?  The overwhelming majority of it. I'm not going to do the math right now, but I'm going to guess that the large majority of Canada's population lives within those 3 areas, right? Edmonton is the only major Canadian city that isn't within a short drive of the US border, correct?

So let's not pretend like cold weather is a big factor here. Cold weather isn't a big issue for the Lower Mainland or the Golden Triangle or Montreal and environs. That's just an excuse. The truth is, we like big houses, we like being able to go for a drive to the country, we like doing lots of other things that use a lot more energy than is politically correct to.

And before condemning people who live the exact same lifestyle as we do, we need to take a good hard look in the mirror.
