- May 4: The timeline now starts at Feb. 29, instead of Jan. 25. With over 3 months of data, the graph was becoming too cluttered. Working on a better solution.

Data is compiled from official
federal and provincial sources, and
This is built with D3.js. A few things I’ve found useful while working on this:
