20,000 Canadian Jedis
According to a Statistics Canada report on religion released Tuesday, 20,000 Canadians declared themselves to be followers of Jediism. And 10,000 of them were from B.C.
It’s also a “religion” that’s growing around the world. In the United Kingdom, for example, there are more Jedis than Jews: 400,000 Jedis compared to 260,000 Jews. In a 2002 Australian census, more than 70,000 people named Jedi as their faith.
