Spring is a season many Canadians hold dear to their hearts.
But it’s also one that can destroy our precious warm-weather dreams like no other. Don’t get us wrong, we aren’t here to knock this great season, we just want to make sure you know what’s in store over the next couple of months. That’s why, in the interest of transparency and disclosure, we’re preparing you for what this season is really like.

“Worst. Mistake. Ever.”
Expectation: You’ll actually be able to, you know, walk on sidewalks now
