External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just modified 5 external links on Canadians. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, you may follow the instructions on the template below to fix any issues with the URLs.

As of February 2018, "External links modified" talk page sections are no longer generated or monitored by InternetArchiveBot. No special action is required regarding these talk page notices, other than regular verification using the archive tool instructions below. Editors have permission to delete the "External links modified" sections if they want, but see the RfC before doing mass systematic removals. This message is updated dynamically through the template {{sourcecheck}} (last update: 15 July 2018).

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
  • If you found an error with any archives or the URLs themselves, you can fix them with this tool.

Cheers.—InternetArchiveBot (Report bug) 03:25, 30 July 2017 (UTC)


@Walter Görlitz: There is no Wikipedia policy mandating that only one reference should be used. I have no idea why you're reverting based on that rationale, but it definitely isn't a valid reason for removing sourced information. Mar4d (talk) 05:06, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

It does make sense to use only a single source for ranking of population estimates - that way we can ensure that we're comparing apples to apples, ie. that the data was collected at the same time and in the same manner. That being said, looks like there are already a couple of entries that use alternative sources, so perhaps those should be removed if not consistent with a single source for the list.

I can see where you're coming from. But as well as I understand Wikipedia policies, our basic requirement is verifiability and WP:RS. There isn't anything limiting the amount of sources we use. In this case, the figures added meet that requirement, so their omission doesn't seem valid or logical. British people, a GA, is a good example. If the timing of the sources is an issue, it's easy to add the years in brackets for each figure.. Mar4d (talk) 04:46, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
No your figures do not meet the requirement as they are a national media post about the number of their citizens in another country and so fail as they are WP:PRIMARY and not verified by a secondary source. Statistics Canada should be used here and not primary sources like the one you've provided. Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:48, 15 August 2017 (UTC)


You just deleted everything I mentioned about the Quebecois ethnicity and sub-nation. I'm very disappointed. I'm half Quebecois and it's important for me, and all other Quebecois, to be mentioned as a distinguished nation in Canada. Why didn't you leave my section there?

Or is there any way you could add up something that mention Quebecois people? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dannydubois1 (talkcontribs) 01:44, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Please don't add anecdotes or personal feelings. The articles are supposed to be backed up with references to books, websites, news, etc. If something is truth, you should have no trouble finding something to back up your statements. Alaney2k (talk) 03:25, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
I will look into this....I agree a small portion 130,000 or so have this ehtnic view. Like American ancestry or like how we metion Canadians in this article......I will make a small paragraph about the perceived ethnic groups we have.--Moxy (talk) 00:08, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
