The re­sults of a new study led by the Na­ture Con­ser­vancy of Canada chal­lenges the rep­u­ta­tion of Cana­di­ans as out­door peo­ple. Three-quar­ters of the 2,000 re­spon­dents said they were more likely to spend their leisure time in­side rather than in na­ture. Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions (rain, snow) and in­sects are among the main rea­sons given by these peo­ple, who stressed that stay­ing in­side was much eas­ier.
