We're all Canadian, and with that comes Canadian weather. It should be our Canadian duty to accept the weather (especially such unremarkable weather ) with dignity and poise. Because believe me: Other parts of the country have it far, far worse.

As the temperature continues to plunge this winter, many Canadians will turn to scarves -- and more recently necktubes -- to keep their necks and faces warm. These swatches of fabric ensure those areas left open by jackets and coats are kept safe from the prevailing winds and wayward flakes of snow. Yet, they may serve another purpose as protectors of our health.
