Donuel, I find the climate of northwest Europe quite comfortable, especially near the coast. Not too hot, not too cold, not too much snow in winter. Guess where my ancestors came from?

I donít live there because said ancestors had very good reasons to leave (revolutions, cholera, financial collapse) and fixable physical discomfort is not a good enough reason to go back. Canada has its drawbacks, God knows ó too hot, too cold, too much snow in winteróbut here the neo-Nazis are still the frazzled edge of the lunatic fringe and fatal diseases donít usually leave families bankrupt as well as bereft.

The summer heat of Ontario doesnít last long by American standards, but itís quite stunning. My Dad, who spent much of the war in east African waters, said the only place he found hotter than Ottawa in July was Aden.
