Some might attribute the difference in snowfall from year to year as a natural occurrence because in realistically no two winters will have exactly the same snowfall totals. However, there is evidence that shows there is a trend of shorter winters with lower-snowfall totals. Over the last century, the northeast United States has seen the average annual temperature has increased by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. For New England specifically, average winter temperatures have increased 4.4 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 30 years. This temperature increase has greatly affected snow fall in this region. Snowfall has decreased 10 – 60 inches (depending on the region) and decreased the average snow cover season by more than 15 days over the span of only 30 years.
The competitive advantage for Canadian Tire stems from the dependency on its dealers and how they interact with their local economy and community.

Winter in Canada is much different than winter in other countries. For one, it is much longer. Winter lasts about six to eight months, and it can be unbearably cold. The days are significantly shorter than summer, which makes it that much harder to wake up for the day at school or at work. Having to shovel the driveway isn’t Canadians favorite pastime at seven in the morning when they are going to be late for work. Also what needs to be taken into account is making sure the car is plugged in during the night. When that is forgotten in the cold days of winter, it is pretty hard to get anywhere because no car would start if it was sitting outside.
