Tracking Canadian Pride by Sydney Beveridge
In 2000–just two years after Canada’s 1998 olympic hockey loss–481,871 US residents checked the box for Canadian ancestry on the census form. Interestingly, not even all of the foreign-born Canadians identified as having Canadian ancestry (there were 820,771 foreign-born Canadians in the 2000 Census).
Now, with a fresh 2010 victory, will more people identify themselves as Canadian? With the 2010 Census, we will find out if Olympic hockey dictates data.
