Australians considering a trip to the Great White North may find themselves quickly making other plans after reading their federal government's travel advisory on Canada.
"We advise you to exercise caution and monitor developments that might affect your safety in Canada because of the risk of terrorist attack," the website reads...
Tornadoes can occur in some areas of Canada between May and September. Bush and forest fires can occur any time in Canada."
The warning also mentions the threat of white "flake-like" material falling from the sky during "winter", which apparently has some co-relation to cold. Skiers from Australia may experience this bizarre phenomenon.
Canada, clearly not for the faint of heart.
