Dozens of parliamentarians weren’t born in the ridings they represent. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but we thought it was worth taking a look at which MPs represent their first place of residence.
MPs are coded as follows: Blue if they were born in the riding they represent, Light Blue if they were born in an adjacent riding, and Red if they were born further afield. Click on a riding, and the info bubbles that pop up tell you where the MP was born, when they were born, and their various jobs before they took office. Zoom in for a closer look at cities where more than one MP was born.
Find anything interesting? Comment away. We’ll be watching.
