"We asked those age fifteen and over for their response to this statement: "The father of the family must be the master in his own home." In 2016, fifty per cent of the eight thousand-plus Americans surveyed strongly or somewhat agreed with that statement. In Canada, by contrast, only 23 per cent of our sample of four thousand respondents agreed.... What's impossible to ignore is that Canada's most patriarchal province—Alberta, a place Canadians most likely associate with hard-driving social conservatism, pickup trucks and the frontier mentality—is still significantly less patriarchal than the least patriarchal region of the U.S.... Our surveys show that patriarchy is also highly correlated with religiosity, parochialism, xenophobia, patriotism, gun ownership and support for the death penalty—all positions prevalent in the so-called red states."
