Canada French-Speakers Are More Traditional

According to a new study by Cefrio, French speaking adults in Quebec are accessing news content through traditional outlets at a much higher rate than others. While 63% of people who speak English or another language in the city use the television to catch up with the news, over 72% of French speaking people do the same. However, the biggest difference comes from those who get their updates from the radio, where a full 20% more French-speaking adults use the radio for news than those who speak English or another language. The survey also revealed that those who don't use these traditional methods are far more likely to use Facebook than any other digital format, with 37% of respondents saying they used the social media site for their news updates.
