Canada a vast country

Imagine, Canada as a Vast Country, room for everyone:

Yes Canada is vast, vast frozen expanses of rock and ice and no sadly we do not have room for everyone.

Physical regions of Canada referencei

Canada10,000,000 km2iActually 9,984,671 km2
Arctic Low lands1,000,000 km2Vast wetland, mean annual temperature is -4°C
Cordillera1,300,000 km2Mountain ranges with small habitable deltas and valleys.
Interior Plains1,200,000 km2Dry prairie native grasslands, wheat fields, pasture.
Canadian Shield5,000,000 km2ii the largest mass of exposed Precambrian rock on Earth.
Hudson Bay Lowlands150,000 km2a vast muskeg / wetland of Peat lands, bogs and fens
Great Lakes Lowland50,000 km2.Location of oak, maple forests and urban area in Canada
Appalacians (NFLD)200,000 km2Known as the Rock
Water area1,000,000 km2We have allot of fresh water that needs to be preserved

Canada is more than half exposed rock and gravel.iWhat is not rock is mostly too dry, the growing season to short and the soil to thin for crops.

The Tundra, overpopulated

While areas in the tundra historically have supported up to 8,000ii people before European technology, today over 100,000 decedents of aboriginals live in the arctic, their existence only possible due to massive inputs of food and fuel from the south. This is the light blue tundra, a barren desolate landscape of exposed rock and ice that has a 6 to 8 week summer during which black flies make life unbearable.

The Taiga, fragile

The Dark blue represents the Canadian Taiga, The boreal forest contains about 10% of Canada’s population. It is vast and fragile. Contributing to the worlds oxygen and a storehouse of greenhouse gasses. Hundreds of towns derive at least 20% of their economic activity from forestry. It is also the largest natural storage of freshwater in the world.

Mountains: uninhabitable

That dark green, mostly mountains with a thin strip along the ocean, already intensely populated.

The Vast Prarie, 5% of Canada

The yellow area, the vast prairie a third of which can be farmed for wheat, the bread basket of the world and the the light green areas prime agriculture, only 5% of Canada.iii

Southern Ontario and west Quebec

South of the Canadian shield is Canada’s prime farmland, a very limited resource, and only 5% of Canada’s land mass is made up of prime land. Unfortunately, this farmland is in one of the fastest growing urban-regions in Canada, home to countless new immigrants for whom we diminish our democracies with super mayors so we can pave over farmland and desecrate our green belts.

90% within 100 km of the U.S.

90% of the population live on 180,000 square kilometers 200km from the US Border. iv The Taiga, where the other 10% live is an ecological storehouse of sequestrated greenhouse gas, much of it bog and muskeg. Canada is much like a horizontal Chile, a thin strip of land close to the US border that is habitable, the rest not suitable for modern human habitation.

We are overpopulated

Considering that which is not rock, muskeg or frozen all year our population density is higher than France, but lower than England. We are an overpopulated country. We are a vast country, BUT, that vastness is not suitable for human habitation. Sadly our politicians have an agenda that is not consistent with the interests of Canadians and pursue policies of massive immigration setting up a narrative of racist for anyone who opposes the interest of Canadians or the Land.

As immigration continues, and we insist on growth of the population, prime farmland is quickly being paved over for shopping malls and suburbs. And since the prime land is very limited, farmers will have a hard time feeding cities, when Canadian cities have eaten the farmland.

Canada’s vast east coast, endless miles of exposed rocky shoreline, like this photo of peggy’s cove Nova Scotia

Canada’s Hudsons Bay lowland, only a foot above sea level and only navigable when frozen. A home to walrus, narwhal and polar bear.


iPhysical regions of canada map

iArea Canada from Wikipedia, this number is 9,984,671, rounded up to 10,000,000 for ease of understanding and comparision with other numbers that are also rounded off. The areas of Canadas different areas varies with sources as the lines of deliniation between geological types is not always marked with a ruler and subject to interpretation by different geologist and geographers. The overall number is correct, the individual areas have been adjusted and are approximate.

iiArea Canadian Sheild, this number includes land partly in the US and water and was originally 8 million square kilometers, reduced to 6.0 million square kilometers. Numbers rounded to nearest 100K for simplicity total unchanged

iMore than half of Canada is exposed rock

iiiOnly 5% of canada is prime agricultural land
