You mean average of 5.58 hours per day over the year? NYC gets and average 6.57 hours per day. Our low is 3.73 average hours in Dec.
If Toronto gets 3.73 hours of sunlight in December, as you say, keeping in mind that Toronto is at a significantly lower latitude than Ufa, does a difference of 2 hours and 45 minutes in the course of a day really merit a lot of elaborate measures to compensate? They are not going to be there for 4 or 5 years - just 2 weeks! Someone mentioned just giving them Vitamin D tablets, and that would seem to suffice without a "spend it you've got it" attitude.
