I've always felt like BC and Ontario had pretty much the same culture, while the Prairies have something different going on. The people and infrastucture in the lower Mainland remind me very much of southern Ontario, and while I haven't been to the Prairies aside from Waterton from videos and street view the cities have a "different" feel from the ones in BC and Ontario that's hard to put a finger on. I want to say the Prairies have a more libertarian and sprawly layout while "British order" is the rule of thumb in Ontario and British Columbia.

Demographically BC and Ontario seem more like too, being mostly Anglo/Asian/Immigrant while the Prairies are more Anglo/Continental.

Yeah I'd say that's the case. I wouldn't say they're exactly the same, but they have more in common with each other than they do with the Prairies.

I agree. They are subtly different culturally and obviously very different geographically.

I think Alberta has a very different feel from BC. Alberta's infrastructure is better, cities are better maintained and the people are somewhat fatter.

The only thing like the prairies are the prairies, and Alberta isn't the prairies.
