We are on the imperial system March 27, 2019 Admin-MCNACanada Post in Blog It is always cold – Believe it or not, Canada has a hot summer. We were above 30º Celcius almost every day this summer. We have heat alerts and we crank our air conditioners just like the warmer tropical countries. When we went to St. Kitts in the Caribbean last month, we were surprised to find that it was more comfortable and less humid than Toronto at that time. Canada can be unbearably hot. Yet another one of the Canadian Stereotypes that are not true. We are on the imperial system – Canadians are on the metric system.(sort of) I don’t know how long a mile is, I couldn’t tell you. We think and drive in kilometres. We measure our drinks in litres and our food in grams and our temperature in Celcius.
