Fun with Geography!

Mainly for the non Canadian folk as most Canadians aware of this in one way or another.  It's distorted a touch by a mercator projection, but 50% of the Canadian population lives below that red line (including myself, though not by much) :)

I was supprised when I read this. I mean, I know it's cold and all, but wow. I think this picture better defines it. The red line here is just 100km from the southern border, but it's interesting to see how populated Toronto and Ottawa are compared to everywhere else.

Now for a fun fact about Florida. We have over 1300 golf courses, more than any other state in the US.  :)

Holy moly kev :)

Toronto area is around 6 mil and Montreal is around 4. Ottawa is just over 1 mil.

There's another stat that 90% of Canada lives 100m or less from the border. Basically everyone outside of Edmonton/Calgary

It would be worse if everything below the 49th parallel was part of the U.S. Although it may make the U.S. a better place.
