In fact, even towns and cities in Arctic Canada (though tiny in number) is getting some (really small, but present) amount of immigrants from places like the Philippines and India, as Canada attempts to get more people to settle the north and spread around immigrants so they don't centralize into only big crowded cities.

Their kids are from Chicago and genetics have no play in that - but those who moved here from warmer climes, well they remember warmer climes. My mom complained about the winter for nearly 60yrs after moving up here from Memphis.
