Census shows Ontario no longer a place to grow

Ontario is dying. It's a slow dissolution, rather than a precipitous or cataclysmic decline. It has taken years to set in and will continue to unfold for years to come. But the pattern in the 2011 census data is unmistakable and, it would seem, irreversible.

Not that the entire country isn't cheering for Ontario to halt its collapse, but the above quote, from the Montreal Gazette is simply the caption for a picture of Toronto's waterfront!

The article the picture is attached to is:
Den Tandt: Census shows Ontario no longer a place to grow:
"In effect, this census confirms that McGuinty has presided over the end of Ontario's economic primacy within Canada. The population of Windsor, Ont., once a key hub in the province's manufacturing economy, is actually shrinking, posting a decline of 1.3 per cent in the past five years."
