Well that's exactly what I'm wondering.

What is the precise definition of French Canadian? Burrows is also an English name but people widely consider him to be French Canadian, same goes for Toews. Is it because one of their parents is "French"? If someone with an English name is born in Quebec, and learns French from the start, lives in a French community, it's hard to determine.
