Canadian Political Leaders Quiz: page four

This is page four of a quiz. If you're flying in here from a Google search or something, click here to go to page one.

Anyway, that wide selection of cities of birth plays out as follows:
  1. Montreal, Quebec. Gilles Duceppe.
  2. Montreal, Quebec. Jack Layton.
  3. Hartford, Connecticut. Elizabeth May.
  4. Toronto, Ontario. Stephen Harper.
  5. Toronto, Ontario. Michael Ignatieff.
An odd list, and it does little for the notion of Canada-wide representation that of five leaders, there are only two Canadian birthplaces: Toronto and Montreal. No points for guessing Ignatieff is from Toronto, but a surprise to find that Stephen "The West Wants In!" Harper was not only born but grew up in Hogtown. Or that Mr. Hogtown himself, long-term Toronto city councillor Jack Layton, was in fact born in Montreal. Again no points for pinning Duceppe in Montreal, but Arnold Schwarzenegger might be intrigued to find that Elizabeth May, candidate for Prime Minister of Canada, could be President of the USA sooner than he could (foreign-born Canadian prime ministers are not unheard-of. The most recent was John Turner of Surrey, England) - I could also say that May is one of two PM candidates who self-identifies as an American...

So moving on to a list that is actually an easier one: where were their spouses born?
  1. Hong Kong.
  2. Hungary.
  3. Montreal, Quebec.
  4. Turner Valley, Alberta.
  5. unmarried.
