Canadian is not a race it's a nationality, therefore it is not a transferable identity. It's like saying someone who was born in Europe is American because their mother came from America. Native canadians can be referred to as North American indians, which is a transferable racial identity.
When are we getting a Danish hero?

And if you say Torbjörn, I swear to Thor I'll punch you in the gabber.

As a Hungarian I want a Hungarian hero only if blizzard has the balls to made him/her the biggest troll in OW.
I want a meme like "mada mada" and "I need healing". :D

You are not wrong!
But having canadian blood doesn't make her canadian. She's still Egyptian as far as I'm concerned.
Axe throwing lumberjack in a checkered jacket!
To solve the confusion, pharah is canadian egyptian. Her dad is canadian, her mom Ana, is egyptian.
First of all, here are the English speakers' nationalities:
3 Americans, 1 British, 2 Australians and 1 Irish.
Total: 7 Heroes appr. 1/4 of the roster

Also, we've got a French hero in the roster.

My question is simple and it's irrelevant with Canada. Despite the current deviations between the former colonies of British Empire, you still share a part of English culture.
Is it so important for the rest of the world? No.
Can developers provide us exciting stories from other countries except English speaking ones? Yes.

I don't care about the nationality of the next hero, but I prefer to engage more "mada mada" quotes rather than accents that only a native speaker can really understand whether it's funny or not.

Here is a list of some exciting countries to have a hero:
Greece
Italy
Vietnam
Singapore
U.A.E.
Iran (Persia)
Yugoslavia

In Canada and many other countries location at birth determines your nationality by the way. Legally speaking. So Pharah's dad being Canadian doesn't make pharah canadian if she wasn't born in Canada.

Sure you can say she has canadian roots but that's it.

It's Jus soli vs Jus sanguinis. Canada uses Jus Soli.
yeah im pretty sure pharah's native skins are a referance to her being partially canadian from her dads side, sooooo yeah, kinda been done but im not opposed to more characters from that country

you say this as if canada didn't have natives. natives who's culture are hinted on pharah's skins. pharah who's father is most likely a native canadian/eskimo. also pharah could've lived in canada with her father after ana hid from the world for all we know. it was hinted in 2016's xmas comic that pharah might graduated from an engineering program due to how engineer graduates in canada wearing an iron ring much like what pharah wear/wore in said comic on her pinky finger
