This year saw the chilliest February in Canada in 115 years, with temperatures between 5 and 9 degrees colder than usual. Don't forget about those brutal storms, either. Spring took its sweet fucking time showing up, with some parts of Canada still experiencing snow in April.

2. And then Ontario and Quebec got a snowstorm in October.

3. For everyone else who does not live in Vancouver, the city has gone more than a year without snow.

4. Degrassi was cancelled.

Sure, Netflix announced soon after that they'd picked up the Canadian teen drama, but it was a good five days of panic for everyone in the Great White North.

5. Canada Post's community mailboxes failed super hard.

Undelivered packages, stolen mail, mailboxes frozen shut — and that's just the beginning. (On the bright side, Canada Post has suspended installations of community mailboxes.)

9. Target broke up with Canada.

After a whirlwind two-year relationship, Target dumped Canada in January, announcing it was shutting down all 133 of its stores and putting more than 17,000 people out of work. By April, the relationship was completely over, and the only signs of our doomed love are in the form of Target Canada's depressing abandoned stores.
