It can get really hot

Most of us think of Canada as the land of the ice and snow, but we have our scorcher days. The most scorching on record occurred in the towns of Yellow Grass and Midale, Saskatchewan, in 1937. The temperature was a burning hot 45°C. So if you really want to soak in the rays, you might want to head over to sunny Saskatchewan.
