So What *IS* My ‘Official’ Mother Tongue?

It’s not census time in Canada, but one question has always been in my mind.  What am I supposed to answer when they ask about my so-called “mother tongue?”  Do I REALLY say that it’s Cantonese?  Or should I say that it’s English?  I feel like I’m lying either way, as I’m sure many children […]
