1. The line represents the 50% of population line (around the 45th).

    The same article listed 72% as living below the 49th.

  2. Who lives south of the 49th Parallel?
    Answer: Victorians do!
    But that seems unrelated to the red line.

    That’s a disconnect on between the title of the article and the content – just saying 🙂

  3. Toronto is at the same latitude as Monaco; Vancouver only a little further north than Paris. Even Edmonton is to the south of Hamburg and Edinburgh. This is why the metonymy of ‘Canada = the North’ annoys me – it’s entirely U.S.-focused.
