    Huh. You didn't by chance have something set to 17th century British?

    The British were attempting a more subtle approach to reclaiming their empire.

    You have thwarted the efforts.

    Weird. Does this relate to the 150th in some strange way? And why just the Maritimes? I was a bit disappointed to see that Ontario isn't labelled as Upper Canada or something.

    I've been meaning to post this on here, I don't have this exact problem but for some reason Dartmouth is shown as the dominant city in the Halifax area on my map.

    Only shows on mobile though. The browser version shows real province names. Seems like somebody on google's qa team screwed up

    Lol. Very strange.

    Weirdest I've found so far was a place called "Ficko" takes a huge level of prominence when looking at Ottawa...

    The Brits want their land back and you Canucks will bend right over. Don't ask Trump for help.

    Whoever is colonizing can keep them. They probably cost a lot to maintain anyway.
