I wonder if Stanstead, Quebec just north of Derby Line, Vermont, is a mostly English-speaking community.

Historically it was more English but these days its more 50-50, with maybe a slight edge to English.

I don't know if the 2011 data is out, but the 2006 community profile shows mother tongue English speakers to be 61% of the community, and the numbers seem to show that an even greater percentage mostly speak English at home, 68%. So while bilingual, I think it'd be accurate to say English is the more dominant language in this town, but not by too great a margin.

Why do you ask? There's a decent wikipedia page list here that gives a list of towns in Quebec by percentage of mother tongue English speakers in them, if you're curious about other towns like this one.

Thanks. I should have thought about that.
