Quebec Referendum Map

It’s tempting to make generalizations about the attitudes of people within a particular country or province. Visuals can help make things clearer. This map of my home province of Quebec shows how the 1995 sovereignty referendum results vary greatly by region. Of course, it doesn’t tell the whole story – other factors such as ethnicity, mother tongue, and rural-urban living play a role. However, this particular map contains enough – but not too much – information to be interesting without being overwhelming.
