The Population of Canada
There are a mere 31,752,842 (January 2004 estimate) 'Canucks'. Ontario and Quebec are the most populous provinces with Toronto and Montreal the largest cities. Montreal followed Toronto 's lead recently, becoming what is known as an amalgamated city. Amalgamation sees many of the city's suburbs join onto the city proper to become one giant mega-city. Amalgama tion has been controversial with residents quite opposed, but with the provincial governments going ahead with it anyway, claiming it will reduce costs (it hasn't). But, amalgamation has meant the new Toronto can now claim to be one of the largest cities in North America, with a population of 4.6 million.
