It is not that the census information is wrong. You seem to
be misinterpreting it. The data can be found at:
The Stats Canada background information on the question is
You started this point as an example of how 10000 French
settlers in the 1600s had grown to about 6 million today.
Here you are using data that takes in people that had
nothing to do with Canada in the 1600s. In the census
a person could check as many groups as they thought
pertained to the heritage of their "ancestors" which is
both male and female. For the significant number of
20th century immigrants from France, Haiti, Lebanon, and
other former colonies of France (lots of African immigrants
here) what do you think many of them checked? Haiti,
French, etc. (multiple responses). Again many of these
multiple responses these have nothing to do with 17th century
French settlers you originally referred to.
I think we are pushing the goodwill of the list here.
