    adopts a term that is now spread among French and Canadian natives,

    Best avoid the phrase 'Canadian natives'. Even though it might theoretically
    embrace all of us who were born here, in actual practice it is effectively
    restricted to refer to aboriginal peoples. 'Native Canadian' is a better
    phrase; even better just drop the 'native' for our particular case.
