According to Corporate Research Associates, types of boomers seem to cluster together in certain parts of the country. Their study classified them into five categories:

-The Free Spirits of British Columbia
-Modern Altruists of the Prairies
-The Self-Reliants spread across the country
-Passive Conformists of Quebec
-The Jaded Fatalists in the Maritimes

The jaded fatalists?

That sounds like Don Mills’ opinion on the world – maybe his data backs him up.

Well, if Maritime boomers are jaded and fatalists – I still give them the nod over ‘modern altruists’. It’s a lot easier to be an altruist with all that oil money coming out your ears, n’est-ce-pas?
