Just-released Canadian census figures for 2001 show that the Muslim population increased by 129 percent in the prior decade, from 253,000 to 580,000. As the Globe and Mail points out, the country's Jewish population remained basically static, at 330,000; it also noted some of the likely policy implications of this fact. And for those used to the inflated numbers thrown around by American Muslim groups, these figures are worth special attention, given that they result from the official census (which asks a religious-affiliation question).
