SONS AND DAUGHTERS: The Italians of Schreiber
Question 4
Many of Canada's ethnocultural communities tend to be concentrated geographically in the larger urban centres.

True. In some urban centres, ethnocultural minorities constitute a very high proportion of the total population. Many of these communities have newspapers, radio programs and cable television shows in their own languages. And some have created ethnic neighbourhoods within their larger urban communities, such a "Little Italys" or "Chinatowns," with distinctive shops, restaurants, clubs and churches.
