 CHERRY CREEK CANADIANS - Canadian Horse History
These horses were crossed with the Canadian and contributed to the development of new and distinctive varieties within Lower Canada, as well as to the general mongrelization of the entire Canadian horse population.
The Canadian breed may well be one of the best kept secrets of the twentieth century - not because breeders of the Canadian have tried to hide the animals, but because writers of books on horse breeds apparently have not contacted Canadian authorities to inquire.
Because of the considerable outcrossing with inferior animals, the Canadian almost lost its separate identity and a general deterioration of the breed had begun to be noted throughout the continent.

In the case of an election by acclamation, for instance, the number of registered electors on the lists for that electoral district was included in the total number of registered electors for some elections, but not for others.
Voter turnout figures have been corrected where appropriate: to estimate turnout in these cases, the total number of votes cast in a plural-member electoral district was divided by the number of members elected from that district (see Scarrow 1962).
This percentage rises to 70.9 when the number of electors on the lists is adjusted to account for electors who had moved or died between the enumeration for the 1992 referendum and the election of 1993, for which a separate enumeration was not carried out except in Quebec, as the 1992 electoral lists were reused.
