I'm not sure you know what you're talking about. There's only one french province in all of Canada: Quebec. Though the two national languages are French and English, only one province is predominantly French. I don't really see anyway to say otherwise.

Also, don't you realize that Wikipedia bit goes against what you're saying?

France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America in 1763 after the Seven Years' War.
That means they lost almost all of their colonies to the British.

How does any of that prove that the culture is predominantly French over English? Like I said in the post above, in 1763, France signed over almost all of it's colonies (presumably every one except Quebec) to the British.

Just because 9 million people speak French doesn't mean that it's predominantly French. People can speak two languages. Also, don't you realize the population is around 33 million, meaning probably about 24 million speak English at the least?
