Have any of you visited this place?

Church Point | Explore Southwest Nova Scotia | Destination Southwest Nova

I wonder how many people there speak French as their first language.

Yes I have intimate knowledge of the place.

About 8 out of 10 people there are native French speakers.

A good chunk of one side of my family is from there. Though many have moved away.

Cool. My step-aunt (rip), her husband was from a small place called "Meteghan". It is pretty close the place mentioned by Mouldy old schmo. I haven't been down that way yet, but I would like to drive the entire Evangeline trail some day.
