From the Paper:

"According to the United States CIA Fact Book, only about two-thirds of Canada's population is of now of European or British Isle extraction (Central Intelligence Agency, sec.3). Further, the number of new arrivals coming to Canada who are of non-European extraction has risen steadily since the 1960s while the number of Europeans choosing to make Canada their home has dropped dramatically (Statistics Canada, graph 2). This means that Hudson's Bay Company has the opportunity to cater to a new demographic that is beginning to assert itself more and more within the nation politically, economically and culturally."
