      No matter how bad the weather gets in montreal I can testify from
      personal experience (walking around) that it is technically possible
      to walk about 30-40 minutes =~ 3kms. Now I don't expect everyone to do
      something like this, but that's what is possible.

      On a side note. I don't know many people who own dogs, but I think
      they walk them year-round regardless of the weather (or at least they
      do if they care about their dog).
