D-90 4/29-5/6 Not everyone is French-Canadian As most people that know Canadian history can 'tell you, the French were the first people from Europe to come to Canada. Because of this, many people in Canada today have a French heritage. However, not everyone likes to be called French-Canadian. In Quebec, for example, they do not consider themselves to be "French- Canadian" and like to be called qudbdcois, which is French for '"people of Quebec." Other areas have similar groups, including the Franco-Albertans (FrenchCanadians from Alberta)and Franco-Ontarians. New people that come over from France or French-speang countries are often called Franco- Canadians to show that they are new to Canada. All of the French-Canadian groups, though, have a common history in Canada's founding. The French came over the Atlantic in hopes of claiming new land. They found their new land in Canada, Louisiana and the Mississippi River valley. In what was to become Canada, they found many animals that they could trap for food and clothing, and worked together with many tribes of Native Americans to learn how to make the most of each animal. In the Seven Years' War (or the French and Indian War), the Indians and the French allied against the British to try to defend the land. The French lost the war, and Canada became part of the British empire. Ever since then, the French-Canadian people have been trying to keep their heritage alive in Canada. In some places like Quebec, signs are posted in French and the residents speak both English and French. The French-Canadians are proud to declare their heritage. lllbe CATAUNA ISLANDER Friday, May 13, 2011 i 11
