Parts Of Canada Are Currently Colder Than The South Pole And Mars

Best of luck with this cold spell, Canada.

Weather across the country on Dec. 28 had people shivering from coast-to-coast-to-coast, as yet another freezing day in an unusually cold week came to pass.

Ottawa had the dubious honour of being the coldest capital in the world when its overnight temperatures hit -29 C Wednesday night. This made it colder than Mongolia’s capital of Ulan Bator, which usually holds the position, according to CBC News.

The Gale Crater on Mars clocked in at -23 C on Dec. 28, which makes the red planet around the same as temperatures in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, and Calgary which were all somewhere between -19 and -24 C today, CTV News reported.
