I do not think so. When I visited Canada recently I was impressed at the vast multicultural population in Vancouver. Similarly as in Seattle, the Japanese-American and other Asian populations were quite represented.

However, in the US there is still a tendency to relate Canadians to the French. This quite well can be the case in Quebec and other areas, but people quit forgetting the amount of Russians, Cheks, and other Slavic and Norwegian populations who infiltrated the huge Canadian territory and inhabited there for generations. Nova Scotia has nothing to do with the French, neither does Victoria, B.C.

I think it is sensationalism which links ALL Canadians to the French and, since the entire world has their own opinion of the French culture, they diminish the uniqueness of Canadians and generalize it to the max.
