    The map of Canada is forever evolving, that's the beauty of it.

    Always has, always shall.

    Funny how some people cite a 'lack of Canadian identity' when truth is it's way more fun having multiple personalities and nothing that can be definitively defined... keeps the world guessing lol. It also offers lots of wiggle-room so we can adjust according to changing times and circumstance.

    Who wants to always look the same and be considered the same anyways - seems rather dull; granted some countries are pretty static in culture and mindset but I prefer the great wide open.

    "The new survey of almost three million people shows that Canada is home to 6.8 million foreign-born residents -- or 20.6 per cent of the population, compared with 19.8 per cent in 2006, and the highest in the G8 group of rich countries.

    Of Canada's 6.8 million immigrants, 91 per cent of them live in metropolitan areas, and 63.4 per cent live in the Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver areas.

    As for religion, Canadians are increasingly turning their backs. While two-thirds of Canada's population said it was Christian, almost one quarter of respondents said they had no religious affiliation at all. That's up from 16.5 per cent a decade earlier in the 2001 census.

    At the same time, immigration patterns have led to growth in the numbers of Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist worshippers"

    That definitely paints a picture that changes by itself over time.
