California twice as much as Ontario for BC. West coast is west coast despite the line we drew in the sand.
Let alone Washington State.

St. John's, Newfoundland is closer to Lisbon, Portugal than Vancouver

And interesting, BC has twice the amount for Alberta than Alberta has for BC.

Those 15% in BC are likely people in the Interior. They'd certainly view Albertans as most like themselves. Albertans likely think of the Lower Mainland when they think of BC, so wouldn't name BC at all.

Saskatchewan to a lesser degree feels mutually close related back to each of Alberta and Manitoba but feels no close relation to BC or Ontario. Like the rest of the Prairies, Saskatchewan does have similar close relation to bordering States.

18% BCers feel closest relation to The Prairie Provinces but less than half, only 8% of Prairie citizens, feel closest relation back with BC.

Values and lifestyles are two very different things. It is confusing to lump them together in one question.

Though you can also see some interesting patterns of "peppering" in post-war bungalow areas like Willowdale and York Mills that have since been largely redeveloped with larger McMansions; or conversely in older fringe areas like Mimico and Weston that weren't fully built out until after the bungalow boom took off.

Yup probably true. Eastern interior especially those in the colder Alberta time zone.

Not a Canadian map or graphic, but interesting nonetheless......

It is possible to sail from the UK to New Zealand in a straight line!!



Sort of the same as how the most direct route between Halifax NS and Perth Australia is directly over the north pole.........

Perhaps its just living in Edmonton and being relatively far form the border, but the identification with Montana always feel perplexing to me. Montana, Idaho, and interior Washington are all pretty distinct IMO from the Canadian side.

I suppose there is subset of Albertans that aspire to be something like Montana, so perhaps its some wishful thinking on their part. Although southern Alberta also feels a bit foreign to me in many ways so maybe there are more similarities there...

Or its just a geographically simple identification that people like to make and I'm reading too much into it.

That being said, Colorado doesn't seem too crazy.

Seems pretty obvious to me that there's a geographical component to it.

Someone from White Rock BC is almost certain to answer WA; someone from the Peace River area of BC is almost certain to answer AB. The sum of all answers (i.e. the averages) depends heavily on the distribution of the population. Since most BCians live right next to Washington State, it's not surprising it's #1.

I'm sure someone from Crowsnest Pass, AB would answer "BC";
I'm sure someone from Coutts, AB would answer "MT";
I'm sure someone from Lloydminster, AB would answer "SK";
I'm sure someone from Fitzgerald, AB would answer "NWT";

and when you start to consider that a good chunk of Lethbridge which is a few percentage points of Alberta right there would probably answer Montana, and that all the ranchland south would also do that, a percentage in the low teens seems not unexpected.

Even assuming Lethbridge and Medicine hat and area all identify with Montana you are still at around 7.5% which wouldn't be surprising to me. And I mean...I might expect Medicine Hat to at least be somewhat aligned with SK so even that seems like a stretch. Obviously one can only read so much into the numbers, but even geographically that number is higher than I would expect.

But again, I'm coming from a frame of reference far enough from border that Montana is just generally out of mind. Southern AB and Central Edmonton are probably about the most drastic cultural difference within the province so I might just be out of touch.

That's cool.

After seeing this I tried one to Australia... from Nova Scotia. Halifax connects with South Australia, northwest of Adelaide. More than 22,000 km!

I just wanted to chime in to agree that there's a pretty big cultural, economic, and environmental difference between Northern/Central Alberta (anchored by Edmonton) and Southern Alberta (anchored by Calgary).

That kinda of makes sense. Right-wing BCers and people in the Interior are more likely to have a "Western" identity that includes AB/SK, but residents of the Prairies are less likely to respond in kind.
