Re: Proposal to merge NS, NB, PEI.

I spent the 80s in Atlantic Canada and I kinda like the idea. Would call it Acadia though.

I wholeheartedly agree with you; however I expect due to the historical geographical inaccuracy to the current day application that it wouldn't be accepted... still the best and most favourable name I've heard yet. I still hear French speaking folk use the name for that area.

It is very unlikely that an anglophone New Brunswicker would *ever* want to call themselves an Acadian regardless of the context of the discussion.
