What the outdoor mincha/ma'ariv minyan in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada, looked like today, Due to high winds the canopies were taken down in November 15th. So they daven outside daily shacharis, mincha, & ma'ariv except for when it rains.
These guys are real heroes of doing the right thing
Tomorrow, on Monday morning, Toronto goes under lockdown; Thornhill is expected to follow next week. Since a maximum of 10 people will be allowed to daven inside, according to the new regulations, they expect to pick up more participants; weather not withstanding.

what Rabbi Mordechai Torczyner posted about the Thornhill minyan:
When a member of our backyard minyan arrives before G-d for judgment one day, the malachim will say, "What can we do to punish this guy for his misdeeds? Fire is useless; for three months we sent him boiling heat and suffocating humidity, and still he davened to Hashem. Cold is useless, too; we sent him cold, ice and freezing rain, and still he davened to Hashem. We might as well just let him through to Gan Eden."

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Wow.

In Toronto we're limited to 10 people for minyanim as of today, which definitely makes things technical especially with the snow. We're figuring it out how to make it work indoors, but that's definitely some serious mesiras nefesh on the part of this crowd.

The mesiras nefesh is incredible but Iíve got to say putting older people outside three times a day like that has got to be more risky than Covid.

What is the risk of being outside, bundled up?

They are Canadians, the mesiras nefesh would be staying indoors too long while it is cold out.

Itís not a problem for you. It can be a real issue for older folks. Think siyum hashas. Standing in one place for a while will get you chilled even if you are bundled up. It doesnít take 4 hours for the cold to start affecting your extremities. That can make older people susceptible to other illnesses as well even if they donít reach the point of hypothermia.

Fake news. Just a poor job of bundling/layering.

Probably, but on a practical level, these people probably won't dress properly, hence the concern.

You know there are a lot of old people who live in a lot of cold weather climates, right?

Yes, but you know how many retirees are in your state? There's a reason for that ;).

TBH, this seems to me somewhat similar to those that try to insist on davening standing up while on a flight. Does davening with a minyan trump non-distracted (by virtue of extreme discomfort) davening?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why in the world is this extreme discomfort?

Can you compare this to indoor davening without winds, or other weather elements, and without all the extra layers?

The cold never bothered me anyway.
If it did I wouldn't live in CLE. Presumably that applies to YYZ.
You bundle up properly and it's nice and cozy.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

No, but most lifelong residents are used to being outdoors in the extreme cold for longer than 30 minutes.
