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.


And the majority of population in Canada as you point out live in colder temperatures than do the majority of Americans. And as you should also know we are more spread out so we have to spend more time in our cars. I'm not sure as to your comment that we like to live in bigger houses. I'm sure a vast majority of our population live in apartment buildings. I would agree that we could do better, but we don't need the US as any kind of guide as to how to.
