- 1. British Columbia’s longest and most destructive wildfire season
Really?? That's complete bunk! 2016 was NOT the longest on record. It started two months later than 2016, and wound down in early September as most seasons do.
Also, my brother was working these fires, and says that the fire bosses are making like $90/hour for 14 hours/day, so they have no incentive to keep costs down. That's why he thinks they were screwing up so bad. For example, starting up the Kleena Kleene fire again with a backburn after it was already contained.
They were at least right about it being the most destructive (in terms of forest burned).
- 2. Dry and hot in the West
Yup, no argument there.
- 3. Spring flooding in Quebec and Ontario
- 4. British Columbia’s cold and snowy winter
- 5. Another Windsor flood: two storms of the century in a year
Cool, a flash flood in a small area makes the top 5. Way to skip over the massive, record flooding we had in BC you Ontario-centric twaks!
- 6. Central Canada’s missing summer
Yeah, more Ontario!
- 7. A new storm of the century
- 8. Summer in September
Indian summer for the east!
- 9. Newfoundland’s Brier blast
Gotta add Newfoundland into the list to be all inclusive!
- 10. New Brunswick’s glaze storm
Pretty impressive ice storm, but not as impressive as the one Abbotsford and Chilliwack had! You guys on the coast got robbed from the top 10!

^i guess we could be included in the fire season. Ridiculous amounts of smoke, day after day of no sun and ash falling from the sky at times. I’d be surprised if we saw something like that again.
