CENSUS SHOWS CANADIANS LOSING THEIR RELIGION

A growing number of Canadians are losing faith. Canada's 2001 census found that 16 percent declared no religion at all -- up from 12 percent in 1990. That means there were as many secular Canadians as there were members of the Anglican and Protestant United Churches combined. Roman Catholics were still the dominant religious group in Canada in 2001, representing more than 43 percent of the population. About half of Canada's Roman Catholics live in the province of Quebec. Muslims in Canada doubled from 1990 to 2001 to surpass the Jewish population, which now barely exceeds the number of Canadian Buddhists. About 20-thousand Canadians declared themselves followers of the "Star Wars" Jedi religion.
