Actually, Canada's climate varies depending on which area you live in or visit. Because of its huge size with extremely varied landscape ranging from snow fields and high mountains to plains and prairies and lower coastal regions, weather conditions vary widely from the Arctic tundra to the mild marine climate of southwestern British Columbia.
The UK is an island country and its weather and climate are strongly influenced by the sea which surrounds the British Isles (Great Britain and Ireland).
As the British Isles are many times smaller than other lands in the Northern Hemisphere, they are more
influenced by the ocean than inland countries with similar latitude1. The sea warms up and cools down more slowly than land, keeping winters relatively (0TH0CHTejibH0) warm but also making the summers cooler. Also, the warm sea current called the Gulf Stream which starts in the Gulf of Mexico keeps the sea on the west side of Britain warmer - frosts are rare in these areas.
The overall climate in the UK is called temperate maritime. This means that it is mild with temperatures not much lower than 0 °C in winter and not much higher than 30 °C in summer. It also means that it is damp and changeable.
moderate = mild = temperate ['temp(a)r3t]
