That's not true. Only 23.2 % speak French, and almost half that percentage speak English. So 10% are bilingual French/English and only 13% speak only French. Only 23% total can speak French, whereas 60% speak English.

Also, what gives you this idea that we all have a French accent? Go to France, that's a French accent. Just so you know, there are colonies of people in places like Nova Scotia that are French speaking....

Quote:
Although 85% of French-speaking Canadians live in Quebec, there are substantial Francophone populations in Ontario, Alberta, and southern Manitoba, with an Acadian population in the northern and southeastern parts of New Brunswick constituting 35% of that province's population, as well as concentrations in southwestern Nova Scotia, on Cape Breton Island, and through central and western Prince Edward Island.
So you may have encountered that in Nova Scotia, but how can you honestly say that it applies to all of Canada?

2.) Just because a contry loses its land dosent mean the land loses it's culture.
Canada is mostly British based, there's really no way around that (unless someone shows me otherwise).

Also, again....


English and French are the mother tongues of 59.7% and 23.2% of the population respectively,[119] and the languages most spoken at home by 68.3% and 22.3% of the population respectively.[120] 98.5% of Canadians speak English or French (67.5% speak English only, 13.3% speak French only, and 17.7% speak both).[121] English and French Official Language Communities, defined by First Official Language Spoken, constitute 73.0% and 23.6% of the population respectively.

How do you completely disregard most of what I said? Don't you realize you're changing your point as we go as well? It was most Canadians have a French accent. Then you said that since 9 million speak French, it helps the fact that we're mostly French. None of that is true.

Tell me though, what about our culture is French? What makes you think Canada is mostly French considering the fact that we're a bunch of British run colonies? How is that possible?

City and colour owns Alexisonfire now. I feel this is where all of DGs time is spent and I feel this was confirmed after hearing the new garbage ass AOF single.

Not really, as we discussed in the AOF thread, Wade ruins things in the band. And Crisis has too much of him.

that's a fair criticism. I will leave the rest my comments for that thread I guess.

but, as far as City & Colour goes, I love the most recent record, and I really cant get enough of mr. Green.

He's allright. Kind of melodramatic at times

I like his acoustic music, but I still enjoy Alexisonfire more, even their recent stuff which a lot of old fans are disliking it seems.
