Which brand/corporation best represents each Canadian province? We came across this American map (above) highlighting one author's opinion on what corporation or brand best represents each American state. If we were to create a similar map for Canada, what corporation or brand would you choose? Please feel free to comment below or on our Facebook link to this image.
Map creator Steve Lovelace describes his map as follows:
"For each of the fifty states (and the District of Columbia), I selected a corporation or brand that best represented the states. My criteria are subjective, but in each case, I picked a brand that a) has ties to that state and b) is still in business (as of 2013).
I encountered several challenges while making this map. Major corporations are not evenly distributed across the country. Some states, such New Mexico, Alaska, Montana and West Virginia, simply do not host many big corporations. Others host so many that choosing one was difficult. In these cases, I went with the company that I though best represented the state, rather than the biggest or most notorious. Hence, I used Dr Pepper for Texas instead of ExxonMobil. I used Apple for California instead of Google or Facebook..."
