YHZ is roughly halfway between the coldest and warmest stations in winter.

This started with an assertion that NL stations are warmer in winter than stations connected to the Canadian mainland (except for Ontario; Signal begrudgingly admits now that Windsor might be warmer but not NS! ). But the warmest NL station is a full 2 degrees off from the warmest mainland station in Eastern Canada and that station is in Nova Scotia.

St. Shotts is not in the 1981-2010 Environment Canada climate normals, the best set of data available for Canada. I'm basing my arguments here on the data, not searching for data that fits what I want. Originally I wasn't sure that the minimal annual temperature range would be smaller at a station in NS than NL for example, but that's what I found. That is a decent proxy for how marine influenced a climate is.
That's all fine, I don't disagree.

Here is where I found information on St. Shotts, although it isn't necessarily the mildest in this table:

The reason I noticed it was the low snowfall stat:
