I don't think it's a stretch to suggest that people in Alberta are more in favour of military spending and less in favour of environmental regulation than people in Quebec are.

The way I read it, Quebeckers favor even closer economic relations with the US.

On social issues, it seems like the ghost of Maurice Duplessis still haunts the province.

I don't get this. Duplessis was a conservative in cahoots with the church and big business. Modern Quebec is almost as liberal as Scandinavia.

.
Not surprising. Quebec has always been a big booster of free trade with the U.S. The fear of becoming more Americanized is not as big in Quebec as in other parts of the country.

You misunderstood. I meant that Duplessis and what he stood for remains a bête noire for many Quebeckers and they still wish to distance themselves from it decades after his death.

OK. That is a possibility.

No it wouldn't. I don't disagree. However comments about BC being quite conservative prove my point.

70 percent of BC'er's live in the lower mainland and southern Vancouver Island, both very liberal areas.

Glancing at the map of BC on this chart, gives a different impression.

I suspected this is the real reason why you take such issue with the maps. You are a left wing Vancouverite and dont want BC to look so conservative. That is what its really about.

The entire lower mainland isn't liberal. I'd argue that it's really the Vancouver(s), Burnaby area.

Very cool stuff.

One thing that jumped out to me was the health care question. Interesting Quebec favours more private involvement in the HC Industry. Is there a reason why they lean in that direction?
