Difference between revisions of "Russell (Ontario)"
Revision as of 00:53, 7 November 2006
Russell is a town in Ontario in Canada. It has a population of about 5,000 or so. While Russell is part of the officially designated National Capital Region, it is usually considered to be part of Eastern Ontario.
Russell is located just to the west of Embrun, which is considered by some people to be Embrun's "sister town" since the two share a municipality and are quite close together (about 3 kilometres/1.5 miles) by Eastern Ontario standards, although there are significant differences: Embrun has 8,000 people compared to Russell at 5,000 and Embrun is mainly French and Russell is mainly English (although that distinction has been blurred in recent years as Embrun becomes more English and the francophone minority in Russell starts to expand).
