The cities of the western Canadian prairies experience a lot of sun. They get very cold weather in the winter, but it is a sunny cold. Blankets of white snow on a sunny crisp day can be very pleasing to the eye.
The big megalopolis cities of the east get a lot of sun also. But the hundreds of thousands of cars criss crossing on the giant freeways create choking smog on humid days.
