description <p>In our rush to study neglected<br />minorities, we too often succumb,<br />paradoxically, to the old idea that<br />Canada is in some sense an "English"<br />country, or that Canada has been the<br />product of two founding peoples,<br />English and French. Either way, the<br />English are seldom seen as "ethnic" or<br />"immigrant." The English in an important<br />sense dominate our early history.<br />Though many colonial officials were<br />Irish or Scots by birth, they followed<br />orders emanating from London, and<br />English economic and political dominance<br />facilitated the hegemony of the<br />English language, both within the<br />British Isles and abroad.</p>
