This is what skews elections. Our electoral system favours The masses population along the border at the expense of the rest of the country.

Even though Winnipeg did not grow as fast as in the last few years, I am glad to see the area reclaim that #7 spot. Until the late 2000s, the city grew slower than all other metro areas that were in the top 10, at one point falling behind Quebec and Hamilton. For decades Winnipeg was the 4th largest city in Canada, before being passed by Ottawa and Edmonton in the 70s, than Calgary in 1981.

Hard to believe that Montreal was the most populated metro area in Canada until 1976. The quiet revolution, the FLQ, and the political climate that tended to be hostile to non-Quebecois caused many businesses to relocate to Southern Ontario. Now Toronto is the chosen destination for new immigrants, and has 2,000,000 more people than Montreal.

Calgary and Edmonton have cooled off considerably after being the fastest growing cities for the past 20 years, although they still are above the national average in population growth. Saskatoon continues to grow at a brisk rate.

It seems the fastest growing cities in Canada are now located in Southern Ontario, London and Kitchener, in particular. Perhaps this is due to the close proximity to other large urban centres, and the relatively affordable cost of living compared to Toronto.

Ottawa's decision to move Fed. offices out of Winnipeg (center of Canada) to help with employment in the East didn't help.

Ottawa never does anything to help the west.

Would an "electoral college" be an appropriate solution? Seems to work in the U.S.....
