BTC: This is our country

by Aaron Wherry

Helpfully enough, the Governor General’s website allows you to search Order of Canada appointments by name, province, citation and field—especially handy for those interested in easily finding honourees who offend them morally, ethically or personally . (I, for one, have never been fond of scientists from Newfoundland.)

Anyway. For those so interested, here’s how the appointments breakdown by location and occupation.
