That has more to do with the distribution of arable land than proximity to the US.

Sure, but trade is a factor, too. One country is a lot more reliant on the other for trade.

No doubt. But trade is also the reason most Americans live near the coasts, including the cities on the Great Lakes.

Maybe once. Now most of us live near the coasts because most of what's between them is a wasteland of small towns filled with small people and people not even close to small towns who think because there's more dirt between them and anything approaching a city they're somehow more American and deserve their disproportionately large political influence with their bullshit caucuses and corn subsidies.

If we don't give disproportionate political influence to the Heartland then the decadent city folk will elect some media-savvy demagogue from a coastal city. The electoral college and Senate are the only things standing in the way of such a political nightmare.

The Canadian prairies are both fertile and coldasballs.
