Directly from the Youtube video: "Canada is built for a strong culture victory and it can make a good run at a diplomatic one as well". My comparison to Russia is fair. Russia receives faith bonuses from tundra at a much earlier stage in the game. The value over time is exponentially better than ice rink culture bonus which will be later. To make ice rinks good you need a lot of end game civics which do not out weight the Lavra value over time. Another point. Canada basically gets +1 food from tundra and Russia gets +1 faith/production. I know what yield I would take. I am really disappointed with how they designed Canada.
