In response to an electoral reform map of the United States which fantasized 50 new states of equal populations, Patrick Cain remapped Canada in the same fashion:
Eventually, I ended up with 14 provinces of between 2.5 million and 1.85 million. The most controversial would be making all of Atlantic Canada, along with a chunk of Quebec along the lower St. Lawrence, one province. (I find it hard to think of a Canadian political project that, for various reasons, good or bad, is less likely to happen.) A union of Manitoba with all of northern Ontario would certainly bring its own issues. For the purposes of the exercise, I ignored the territories.A list of the populations of the new entities is at the map source, Global News. (The embed above is twice-clickable).
