[Talk-ca] What should a Canadian style map look like?

One aspect of the map that is not a uniquely Canadian problem, but is
perhaps more significant here than in other places is how temporal
objects & spaces should be handled. Many important aspects of mappable
life change distinctly between summer & winter - ice rinks,
recreational trails, usability of roads, availability of certain
services, etc.

Perhaps this specific type of temporality - summer vs winter - could
use some well-defined visual & data conventions to make them easier to
see & understand than current approaches to intermittent/temporary
objects in general.

Maybe we'd even seasonal map stylesheets :)
