someone struck again with some racist vandalism. Deleted it. Might be interesting to have some sociological info about Kitimat. -Rob —The preceding unsigned comment was added by RobSlanina (talkcontribs) 06:03, 6 December 2006 (UTC).

Current news?[edit]

It's a pity there is not more about present-day Kitimat, as this page reads largely like a history lesson on the aluminum smelter project of Alcan. Anyone able to provide any more on this? BC people are resourceful, c'mon now. I'll do some research of my own and come back. Ghostreveries (talk) 22:57, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Portuguese community[edit]

there was an article on this in one of the Vancouver papers, or maybe it was a TV show; can't remember the story of how they all got there, apparently there's local Portuguese-flavoured cuisine and such, and Portuguese is spoken around town and has influenced the slang (so the article/show went). Their arrival was to do with the fishing fleets,and they worked in the canneries I think, but it may have had something to do with the then-dictatorship in Portugal. I looked up Kitimat's EthnoCultural Portrait] and sure enough there's 16.2% of the population, 1,450 people of Portuguese origin, ahead of the Irish and nearly on par for the Germans - rare for anywhere in BC - and in 5th place. And of that, 1,175 pure Portuguese (prob some second generation, as the emigration was IIRC in the 1950s). Trail and Revelstoke were famous for their Italian populations, and Prince Rupert for its one-time Hungarian population, that doesn't show on their current demographics, it's interesting the Portuguese have stuck around....more on their history may be online somewhere, and some reference however brief should be in the article; I don't know enough to write it myself (and have lots of other things on the go....).....I know given a choice between the weather in Kitimat and that in Lisbon or the Algarve, I know where I'd go...actually they may be Azorean, come to think of it...Skookum1 (talk) 10:34, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
