Panel 1: In the title panel of this colour comic, a glowering Rahim holds a thermometer in front of his face. It is indicating that the temperature is about 37 degrees Celsius, or 98ish degrees Fahrenheit. On the thermometer are written the words "WEST OF BATHURST" and "by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Marie and Rahim are walking through Queen's Park in Toronto.

Marie: What beautiful weather.

Rahim: Uh-huh.

Panel 3:

Marie: Isn't it?

Rahim: Clearly, you have never spent a summer in Toronto.

Panel 4: They walk down the path as a jogger runs by in the distance.

Rahim: The weather will be beautiful for the next two days. Then the temperature will go up to thirty-six and the Humidex reading to seventy-five percent.

Panel 5: Rahim leans against a tree.

Rahim: By the middle of May, smog advisories will be a daily occurence. Rain will fall torrentially on occasion; it will not relieve the heat, the humidity, or the pollution.

Panel 6: Marie follows warily as Rahim continues down the path.

Rahim: As there is no air conditioning in your room, you will be spending the summer shivering in various libraries. A simple five-minute walk will cause you physical pain. Before long, you will yearn for winter.

Panel 7:


Rahim: Enjoy.

Alt-Text: My favourite bit is when it actually becomes painful to breathe.
