Population Shifts and Politics

Over the course of my next 5 blog posts I will outline how population shifts have altered politics in Canada and in the United States, and will continue to do so through immigration, settlements, migrations, and population growth rates.

I will focus on the movement westward in the late 1800s in both countries, the increased immigration to Canada and the United States since the end of the Civil War, the migration of African-Americans to northern urban centres in the early 20th century, and the high growth rates of ethnic population groups that will have profound impacts on elections in both countries for decades.
