(...)The city in question here is none other than Canada's capital city, Ottawa. According to Dave Phillips, who is a senior climatologist at Environment Canada, Ottawa had the worst winter in all of Canada. He even told the Ottawa Morning show that "If I was awarding the gold medal for winter misery I think it would go to Ottawa."

He went on to say that this was because in Ottawa they dealt with everything this winter. Whether it was extreme cold, freezing rain and ice pellets, or heavy snowfalls, Ottawa had it all. In fact, when it comes to snowfalls specifically the city had over 50% more snow this year than they normally get in the winter. The best thing about Ottawa's crazy winter though is that it was all documented online.https://www.narcity.com/ca/on/ottawa/news/an-ontario-city-just-won-the-unofficial-award-for-the-worst-winter-in-all-of-canada-this-year
