Why did Canon put the light meter vertically in the viewfinder? It's hard to see in the sun light.

Yes, I have trouble seeing it, too.  

 

Why there?  I don't know, but that is where meters were located in my 35mm film SLR cameras.  There would be a needle thing, almost like a fuel gauge in a car, that could pivot and angle either up or down.  It would be horizontal in the middle of its' range.
