While this is certainly to be taken into the equation, the other half is population density. Where do most of the people live? Where is the capital city? Where are the largest and most important economic urban agglomerations? We all know the answers to those.
Anyway, that "distorts" the geographic map somewhat and pulls the country inwards around Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal.
If anything it "distorts" the population centre of the country quite far south from the geographic centre. It puts the largest city in the country farther south of where the Canada/US boarder is in the rest of the country. For better or worst Canada does not have a uniformed population distribution.
Having lived in both Manitoba, BC, Saskatchewan and northern Ontario, I find there is a certain Western culture that exists on the prairies. BC is a little different in that is very much a cross between that western culture and a very pacific rim focus.
All said, not certain what it has to do with this new office building for Telus. Telus is certainly a western company that is finally getting a nice looking building in downtown Vancouver. That said, I really liked the look of the building on Boundary and Kingsway.
