Like the United States, Canada is becoming a melting pot of different ethnicities, cultures and languages. Statistics from Canada indicate that while most people in Canada speak English or French at home, one out of every six people reported having a mother tongue other than English or French. The survey also says that the fastest growing language groups in the country are those that are regularly spoken in Asia and the Middle East.

At least 2,994. As of April 1, 2015, there were 3,002 individuals on death row in the United States. As of July 21, 2015, 8 executions have taken place since then. Our estimate does not take into account the number of death sentences handed down since April, so the number is likely to be higher. For reference, in 2014 there were 73 new death sentences issued in the United States. In 2013, a total of 80 death sentences were handed down. In 2012, a total of 77 death sentences were handed down. In 2011, 80 death sentences were handed down. In 2010, 109 death sentences were handed down to defendants.

According to experts, it is unlikely that the British immigrants to Canada were highly educated. Thus, they did not bring with them the “proper” form of English that was spoken, for example, by graduates of Oxford and Cambridge University. Instead they brought a more “casual” type of English to the country, a circumstance that caused the minority of educated immigrants to object, including a woman named Susanna Moodie, who penned the book Roughing It in the Bush (1852), a biopic about her struggles with Canadian English. Nevertheless, the type of English introduced to Canada in the early 19th century was by no means standard. It was spoken English, often typical of the region from which the speakers came, such as Ireland, Yorkshire or Devon.

English and French are the co-official languages of Canada, and both are used in the country’s federal government institutions. What this means, essentially, is that the public has the right to communicate with, and receive services from, federal government institutions in either English or French and that federal government employees have the option of working in the official language of their choice in designated bilingual regions.

Under federal law, an act of espionage can be punished by death under limited circumstances: (1) A jury must find that as a result of the act an agent of the U.S. was identified by a foreign power and killed; or (2) a jury must find that the act involved disclosures about enumerated weapons, defense systems, intelligence systems or plans.

The many languages spoken in Canada are a reflection of the country’s long history and colonial roots. From an official standpoint, Canada is a bilingual country, with both French and English recognized as the nation’s national languages, but there are also a multitude of non-official languages spoken in the country, ranging from German and Spanish to Punjabi and Chinese. This does not include the large number of native languages that can be heard around the country, particularly in the northernmost reaches of Canada. According to the latest census information, there are over 50 distinct languages and many more native dialects spoken throughout Canada, which are classified into 11 Aboriginal language groups. Of them, only Ojibway, Inuktitut and Cree are spoken by a large enough group of speakers to be considered relevant. Salishan languages are also used in the Northwest Plateau, while Iroquoian and Algic languages are spoken in the Eastern Woodlands cultural area.

Federal death row prisoners are held in the United States Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana. Military death row prisoners are held in the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Death row prisoners are also held in states that have not abolished the death penalty. Two individuals are still under sentence of death in New Mexico, as that state’s abolition law did not operate retroactively. Despite official legislation to repeal the death penalty in 2012, Connecticut still holds eleven inmates under sentence of death since the law did not apply retroactively to commute the punishments of those previously sentenced. Maryland also abolished the death penalty in 2013, leaving five prisoners on its death row.

The largest state death rows are in California, Florida and Texas. Of the 43 executions that occurred in 2012, 15 (the most out of the other 9 states that executed prisoners) were carried out in Texas. Of the 39 executions that took place in 2013, 16 were carried out in Texas, again the most of any state. One can locate the death row of most states by finding the state’s government websites.
