This Is How Empty Canada Really Is (PHOTOS)

Everyone knows most of Canada is uninhabited, but seeing really is believing.

OK, no humans is a bit of an exaggeration

But even a more exact map shows a whole lot of nothing

Because let's be real, Canada is pretty empty

Only one million people live above the line

Less than 1% of the population lives in the white area

50 per cent live in just the red regions

If every person got a dot there would be a lot of white

But the view from space is most dramatic

Canada really is a cold Australia (Only 2 per cent live in the gold)

Or an equally cold Russia (50 per cent live in the red)

But empty or not, we wouldn't want to live anywhere else
