Well, Nepean is significantly populated by immigrant communities, just like mine, the next one over*. I go shopping, it is more than 75% of the time the person to my right (or left) does not look like me**.

So, besides painting all of Ontario with one brush, tell me what your point is supposed to be.

*Census data continues to show that urban centres in Canada, including Ontario, continue to look less and less "white". Cite -> 27% of the city of Ottawa is a self reported visible minority.

**Within 2 km of my house, I have Little Lebanon, Little Somalia and a significant mixed African community. Expanding a bit broader, we have larger enclaves of south Asian groups and Caribbean groups.
