Those ethnic Americans in the Southeast are mostly the descendants of old Anglo and Scots-Irish settlers from the colonial era and I’d wager half those “Germans” and “Irish” Americans have substantial Anglo heritage”–Disillusioned_Brit

–“The “Canadian” ethnic identity was added to the census in 1996. Contrary to the oft-repeated myth that it synonymous to being French, many non-French Canadians also choose to list “Canadian” as their ethnicity.

“Yeah, Canada’s climate zones are anything but horizontal.

Not a lot of people outside Canada realize that palm trees will grow very well in cities like Victoria or Vancouver. Although some people in British Columbia like to take it a bit to the extremes.
