As the maintainer of console-data and kbd-chooser in Sarge,
I should answer, I suppose.

If you select "French Canadian" in the new installer, you get
the "cf" keymap, the same one you get when you type
"loadkeys cf" (ditto on Redhat and Mandrake, I believe).

Can you please try "loadkeys cf"?

If it is wrong, I would certainly like to know whats wrong about it.
