And would Ontario be a blue state? (red is slang for Republican, blue for Democratic)

Also, would the people of Quebec have sided with the Confederacy in the Civil War, due to Louisiana (with roots in Quebec) being a Confederate state?

Quebec is rather left wing, it would be blue.

Trying divide Canadian politics neatly into Dems and GOP?

Ignoring the fact that there are also many other political parties in Canadian provincial and federal level that don't fall neatly into left or right. NDP, PQ, BQ, Green Party, Liberals, Conservatives, Progressive Conservatives, BC Liberals (which is completely independent of its federal counterpart).

Isn't it an amusing coincidence that Pepsi is way more popular in Quebec than Coke, and likewise, the Quebec flag is blue, while the flags of Ontario and Manitoba are based on the British Red Ensign, which fits with Coca-Cola using red as its trademark color (I'm American, but call it colour if you like).

The NDP and Conservatives are neither left or right?

Why is Quebec left wing if Maine (including the many migrants from Quebec there) is a very right wing US state? And Louisiana (settled by Quebecers) is a VERY right wing US state?

Well you decide if it might be a different set of value principles such as subsidized day care, subsidized tuitions, universal healthcare among other government funded perks that would set Quebec apart from Les Autres.

Maine is an anomaly among New England states. CT, RI, MA, and VT are all super liberal, but ME and NH have a sort of conservative club. And NH leans libertarian but is still more conservative than anything.

I think both Quebec and Ontario are more to the left than most of the American states. I don't see any Canadian province who would have sided with the Confederacy.
