Say What?

Did you know Canada.. our official languages are English and French of course but what might be surprising is that according to the 2006 census English accounts for only 59.7% of the nations first language.  French is 23.2% and 17.1% of people have neither of our official languages as their mother tongue.

The province with the largest concentration of those with English as their first language is Newfoundland & Labrador, second is Prince Edward Island.  The largest concentration of those with French is of course Quebec with New Brunswick coming in second.
