    0:18 - Well... the 48th parallel is not the longest border. If you were considering the border of all of the US, including Alaska, then yes, it's the longest border between 2 countries.

  • Ryanhwelton

    I am not understanding why the presenter thought he would be embarrassing Canadians with this video. The location of cities is based on topography, past military significance, climate, and access to trade. This “small” population controls much of the world’s natural resources and business is good.

    0:44 “50% of Canadians live south of this line” *has southern Ontario filled in as well as Nova scotia* Southern Ontario: 14 million people Nova Scotia: around 1 million people 15 million people divided by 38.1 million people = 42%. That math is scary.

    BS to the 49th parallel being the longest border between 2 countries Australia's border(mainland only) to another country is 22,293 miles long.

  • SevenThunderful

    I live at the 47th parallel in WA state and my weather is pretty mild, a lot more mild than Toronto. I'm surprised that the western part of Canada doesn't get more attention. Southern British Columbia is not that bad.

    Because it's frigging cold

  • SomeoneCommenting

    Why is it "embarrassing" that Canada has geographically a point so south, considering the damn *geographic shape of the Great Lakes* ? It's not like if Canada was the one who controlled the Ice Age glaciers to make that continental feature. And by the way, they live as down as possible because Canada is polar cold anywhere up there in winter. Even that south.

    There's another, huge reason why so many Canadians live near the border, that I thought this guy was transitioning to. Political. The first true transcontinential railroad, the CPR, was built near the border to establish Canadian control over what would one day become the provinces of Manitoba, Saskachewan, Alberta and British Columbia, by establishing our own transcontinental railroad, connecting Halifax to Vancouver, and located near the 49th parallel to ensure we could populate our side of the border with settlers and move troops in as needed to prevent the USA from colonizing our west away from us. Back when our founding Prime Minister, Sir John A MacDonnald made this decision, Americans were starting to send spur lines up into Canada, and migrate Americans into western Canada. The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) from Halifax to Vancouver headed off that move and established Canada's territory, as the USA was forced to stop sending settlers and abandoned any spur lines they'd been building up towards/into Canada. Back in those days, the war of 1812 was still a fairly recent memory, and the American war cry of 54-40 or fight was still a part of current events. Canadians were very much concerned about America taking away parts of our country. The best way to head that off without forcing them into a major international war, would be to simply populate the border with Canadians and economic activity. That's the real, historical reason for most Canadians to live near the Canada-USA border.

    Because most of Canada is cold and most of our land is not easily habitable. A lot of the land is icy sheets of land or big, rocky mountains covered with thick forests. Anything south of this line is good farmland and easy to build upon. No wonder our population is 1/10 of the USA
