are a bilingual community. Municipal services are bilingual. Our web site is bilingual. We can offer bilingual services because the majority of our residents are English, says the mayor. with the census, and Bill 14, well, we don know what might happen. Bill 14. The last piece in this absurdist puzzle.
anyone from a country that has never won a gold medal at a winter Olympics.
The census has merely confirmed what everyone here already knows. This is a French English community.
This now leaves us with a total population in Chelsea of 6,808 and an Anglophone population of 3,365.
Which works out to 47%.
According to the census there are not 6,780 people living in Chelsea, there are actually 6,975. One hundred and ninety five people did not bother filling out the census.
Won matter if the town council wants to stay bilingual. Won matter if the residents want to stay bilingual. Dip below 50%, and you become French only.
I think you would be doing some people a favour if you steered them toward warmer climates. So, I going to do just that and take away from the Chelsea census numbers Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Black

were not expecting it, says Caryl Green. we saw the actual figures we were shocked. It was the sort of thing you expected to never change. But there it was. change was the 2011 Census, where, for the first time since censuses have been taken in this country, there were more Francophones living in Chelsea than there were Anglophones.
Now, that one per cent doesn matter much to the people who live in Chelsea. On a slow night, it might give you bragging rights at the Chelsea Pub, but it doesn go much further than that.
So I going to add the missing people to the English side of the ledger (scrutineer prerogative.)
It came to me when I was reading the 2011 Census. It right there. Stay with me a minute and I walk you through it.

PQ has said they will pass Bill 14 if they form a majority government, says Green. is a lot of concern in the community right now. you can Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-axial imagine that.
I don think Chelsea should lose its bilingual status because some people were lazy. Omega Seamaster 300 Vintage 1960

As simple as that. Account for the missing forms, convince some Spanish speaking people to flock off to Nanaimo and you are 39 babies away from telling the PQ to take a Omega Seamaster Diver
Yes, 6,975 souls. There is a reason I am being so precise. I explain in a minute.
There are another 355 people in Chelsea who are neither French nor English. And while living in Chelsea makes sense to me if you Russian or Swedish, it a mystery to me what you doing there if you Spanish.
Chelsea needs more English babies
But with Anglophones now behind Francophones, all manner of things could soon happen to Chelsea. I let Mayor Green explain.
It would also make French the only language a municipality can use if the Anglophone population is less than 50%.
