Wheat-growing province and birthplace of most of Canada’s social democratic institutions, such as medicare and common sense. Along with most of the good ideas that have influenced Canadian politics since 1945, the province is rapidly divesting itself of socialist and grain-farming population in order to become a zone of fast-silting hydroelectric and irrigation projects for the U.S. cornbelt. It is also the only province with perfectly straight borders.
