In a recent column, the writer stated: “Personally, I’d be more concerned about getting cancer from the sun. This being Victoria, I don’t have to worry much about that either.”

I’m always surprised when I hear people say things like that, even jokingly.

Victoria, after all, is the sunniest city in B.C. – we get significantly more sun than the “sunny Okanagan.”

According to Environment Canada statistics, Victoria gets more annual sunshine than any other city in Canada, other than those on the southern Prairies.

During the summertime, we beat even those cities.
