When a stranger approaches you in Cabano, he will do so in French. When a stranger approaches you in Madawaska, he will do so in English.

If you go to McDonald's or a gas station in Cabano, the little print out from the cash register will be in French. In Madawaska it will be in English.

Cabano is in the province of Quebec (official language: French) in a country called Canada (official languages: French and English). Madawaska is in the United States of America, where French has no official status, and English is the only de facto official language.

Gary - 29/49
Camden - 22/34
Baton Rouge - 61/95
Youngstown - 16/23
Wilmington - 16/18
St. Louis - 71/143
Compton - 19/38
Baltimore - 129/238
I think we've had this discussion before.

Mr. Prelee only counts 15 homicides so far this year, in Youngstown. When was the homicide he is missing?

As terrible as those pix seem, I'm sure Detroit can easily compare.

Isn't that why we all post here? Arguing is to city-data as apple pie is to America. Although i take the arguments seriously, i don't throw around irrelevant facts and info. That argument was simply meant to prove a fact that there are indeed french areas of the US that are comparable with french areas of Canada.

Though again, great input

Well, at least now I know not to take your statements quite so seriously, especially since you're arguing just for the "sport" of it..

I'm quite familiar with the influence of the French ( or the Quebecois), since I'm from northern VT, but it's still not Canada; it's more like "pidgeon French", and a love of Montreal.

True.
Juarez (as of mid 2010, previous 365 days) 133 per 100,000 inhabitants.
To put this number in comparison, Las Vegas Nevada, in the most dangerous state in America (Nevada), typically averages less than half the homicides in one year that Juarez averages in one month. That's.... messed up.

New Orleans had a 67 per 100k murder rate in 2008.
Thats compared to Detroit with 33.8 in 2008. The Detroit murder-rate improved from 394 murders in 2007 to 306 in 2008.
Thats 179 murders in New Orleans with a 340,000 population that continues to rise.
These stats come from www.city-data.com, which is this site.

Oh so you come here to just agree with everybody and go on? No. Just like everyone else, i come here to argue for, really, fun and to pass time. You can think whatever you like of my comments, I already have a very concrete view of you, MasssVT
