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.
