Heh heh heh...there are only 37 East Asians in Saskatchewan according to Statscan, but you must keep running in to them all the time.
Please! I'm in one of the computer labs at the University of Saskatchewan right now. There are more than 37 East Asians right here.
Yep, Saskratcheywan is just crawling with Chinese. I never saw any when I was there, but that must have been a fluke.
2001 census: Saskratcheywan total pop: 978,935
Chinese pop: 8,085 (admittedly a few more than 37, it's true)
Percentage of Chinese per total population: 0.825%
2001 census: Ontario total pop: 11,410,045
Chinese pop: 481,505
Percentage of Chinese per total population: 4.220%
2001 census: British Columbia pop: 3,907,735
Chinese pop: 365,490
Percentage of Chinese per total population: 9.353%
Without spending the time to search for the stats, let me just guess that New York and California also have fairly high percentages of Chinese residents. Now, I haven't given actual definitive proof in hard numbers that their concentrations are higher than Saskratcheywan (which surely "must have the highest concentration of Chinese in North America"), but if I were a betting man I think I'd place a couple of 20-dollar bills on that action.
I'm thinking Saskratcheywan might be in the running when it comes to combines and tractors, though.
