Viva Italia

This week in Montreal it's Italian week. Canadians of Italian origins, immigrants and second and third generation of Italian descent represent the largest ethnic group in Montreal, some 300 000 people. Probably a population larger than many Italian towns. Many activities are held in around little Italy and even the weather seems compliant.
A tutti gli Italiani, megliori auguri e buon settimana.

  1. I thank you for stopping at my Abe Lincoln Blogs and leaving a comment.

    I read your post today with interest. I also just read or heard, can't remember which, that the white population is the United States will soon be a minority. It is hard to believe but probably true.

    I am still making history on my Pick a Peck of Pixels blog. Today I posted a House Wren. Pick a Peck of Pixels

  2. It is a statistical fact that in the US and Canada recent immigrants from Asian and African countries are having many more children than the old stock population. The same is true of the First Nations peoples. So yes it may come that descendants of the original English and french settlers, in both countries will find themselves in a minority situation if they don't find the energy and selflessness of having more children.
    In some parts of the US, black people, for a long time, have outnumbered whites, the same is now true for Hispanics in some area of Arizona and New Mexico. In Canada, large cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver are almost minority territories for the original Blokes and Frogs.
    I will now go have a look at your house wren.

  6. Well, as I said in my blog, I am at home and it happens to me to read people's blogs. I see that Mr. Reagan comments here too. Glad of that :-)
