It seems that the city of Chilliwack has suffered from an identity crisis over the years.
It has been called the “Green Heart of the Fraser Valley” and it has also been called Rainbow Country.
According to Environment Canada, 10 of the 11 warmest cities in Canada are in British Columbia.
Five cities with the highest annual average temperature in Canada are (in Celsius): Chilliwack – 10.5, Vancouver – 10.1, Abbotsford – 10, Nanaimo – 9.7, and Victoria – 9.7.
The city of Chilliwack does not need to suffer from an identity crisis any more because it is the warmest city in Canada!
I can envision the billboards when entering Chilliwack: “Welcome to Chilliwack, the warmest city in Canada.”
