$0.99 Sale | Download 5 Charming Shorts about Canada’s Most Infamous Season

Hold onto your snazzy pompom tuques, folks! Canada’s most infamous season is at our door.

Even if Montreal still looks and feels more like Halloween than ♪Falalalala, those of us who’ve been on Canada’s seasonal merry-go-round before  (-30 to +30 and back again whoa!) know it’s only a matter of time before Mother Nature gives us her months-long cold shoulder treatment.

Oh horizontal snow jabbing you in the eyes, reddened runny noses and boot-eating slush! You know it’s coming!

But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, fellow Canadians. Think of all these winters we’ve survived. Think of all the character we’ve built. “Canada,” like Pierre Trudeau said, “is not a country for the cold of heart or the cold of feet.”

So reconcile with the impending arrival of our most defining and yes, enduring season with these 5 magical films about winter. They’re yours for only $0.99 each all week, so download away.
