If I may I would suggest the numbers tell much of the story. We live on a larger land mass than the US with ~10% of the population, and  Even in our most populated cities, relatively low population density hampers infrastructure development.

And yet, we don't see any particular improvement in our standard of living from when we only had 25 million, or even 20 million people, aside from the advances of technology. As for those 'wide open spaces', more than 90% of us live in a thin strip of land along the US border. Nobody is coming to Canada to go live on the Arctic tundra. They're going to Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
