Let’s have some fun with numbers with one of my favourite academics, the University of New Brunswick’s Michael Haan.

Michael is the Canada Research Chair in Population and Social Policy and earlier this year he gave a 10-minute presentation about the Maritimes population bomb at 2017 Starts Now, which was a series of conferences held across the country last spring in anticipation of Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017.

His presentation inspired our ‘Will I stay or will I go’ graphic, which we posted yesterday to launch Wicked Ideas.

Consider this the director’s cut.

2017 Starts Now was a partnership between CBC/Radio Canada, VIA Rail Canada and the Community Foundations of Canada. To learn more and watch other smart Canadians, visit the website
