A large part of Canada faced a mild Christmas on Monday, while the mercury remained above zero in several provinces.

In Montreal, the white landscape that covered the city at the beginning of December, when a storm left several centimeters of snow on the ground, seemed far away.

Temperatures peaked at midday in the metropolis at 5°C, according to Environment Canada data, and traces of snow were rare. In Quebec, the mercury reached 2.4°C around 1 p.m.

The situation was similar in the Maritimes, with Fredericton, New Brunswick, also experiencing a high of 5°C on Monday.

To Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, reached a temperature of 6°C.
