There are only about 29 million people there. Most Canadians are of British or French origin, and French is an official language of Canada as well as English. About 45% of the people are of British origin, that is, they or their parents or grandparents, etc., come from Britain. Nearly 30% are of French origin. Most of the French-Canadians live in the province of Quebec. Over the years, people have come to live in Canada from many countries in the world. They are from most European countries and also from China, besides other Asian countries. However, Canada was not an empty country when the Europeans began to arrive. Canadian Indians lived along the coast, by the rivers and lakes and in forests. Today there are only about 350 000 Indians in the whole country, with their own languages. In the far north live the Inuit. There are only 27 000 Canadian-Inuit. Their life is hard in such a difficult climate. 56. About live in Quebec.

B “What part of the States do you come from?” “I’m not American. I’m Canadian.” This is a mistake that Europeans often make. Many Americans, too, admit that it takes them a while to tell if it’s an American talking or Canadian. This upsets （使……不安） some Canadians, because they want people to recognize them as Canadians. They want everyone to know that Canada is an independent（独立的）nation with its own special character.

Eighty of percent of all British Canadians had come from the USA. From the very first, Canada was a country with two languages, neither of which influenced（影响）the other very much, because the French and British spoke to each other so little. Canadian English has always remained very like American English, and the influence of the Indian and Inuit languages was no greater than the influence of French. But here are some important words that have found their way via（通过） Canadian dictionaries into British Dictionaries. 61. The sentence “I’m not American, I’m Canadian.” suggests . A.
