Canada weather: Dozens dead as heatwave shatters records

As a Canadian with family in Texas, that friend of yours is an ass.

It’s 10x easier to survive cold temperatures like -40 Fahrenheit when your houses are designed specifically to keep heat in, everyone has good winter parkas and toques, and they’re available to refugees and homeless individuals, and most people have experience with cold.

Even then there are always a few homeless people here who die from the cold or people who lose fingers and toes due to frostbite, and pipes burst sometimes. I can only imagine the carnage below zero (or below 32 degrees in Fahrenheit) caused over there especially when your guys’ buildings were not built for that.

I had sympathy for what you guys went through before but it’s even higher now. Just like your guys’ system, our power grid is made for our climate (cold), there’s already been power outages in my city and we didn’t even get that hot comparatively (98 degrees).
