'It's a dry cold'

Multiple cities in Canada experience low -30s and even -40 in the winter.

Edmonton
Calgary (although less so)
Saskatoon
Regina
Winnipeg

With many cities hitting -20+ including

Toronto
Ottawa
Montreal
QC

We are pretty far north and so when an arctic airmass comes down it gets very cold a a period of time.

That said, we also can experience 30+C in the summer and during the winter have wild fluctuations.

A week ago it was -30, this week it is +5C.
