PolitiFact Florida double-checks Gov. Rick Scott's claims about Canadians
Fresh off a five-day trade mission to Canada, Gov. Rick Scott was eager to drop a few tidbits about the country's relationship with the Sunshine State.
In a news conference with the Capitol press corps on June 16, 2011, Scott showed off his Florida-Canada knowledge, claiming that:
• "Almost 10 percent of Canadians came to visit Florida last year."
• And, "they buy 7.4 percent of our homes in the state."
Interesting claims, eh? But true? PolitiFact Florida checks 'em out.
