Maple Syrup Report[edit]

Give me a heads up when the newsletter is to be published so I can write it accordingly. - Floydian τ ¢ 00:41, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Fall is here and the leaves are changing. But fret not, because with winter comes more time inside; with more time inside comes more time to edit Wikipedia! Nevertheless, summer has been productive in the Great North. Since our spring update, two new featured articles have been added to the ranks: the Queen Elizabeth Way and Ontario Highway 61. The former, of interesting note, is considered the first divided highway in North America, and once boasted the longest illuminated stretch of roadway in the world! The latter, meanwhile, began its existence with a bridge constructed between Canada and the United States without government permission! Ontario Highway 403 is currently a Featured Article candidate. If promoted, it would become the fifth 400-series highway Featured Article. On the same page, Ontario Highway 407, the first fully-electronic toll highway in the world, is currently the final 400-series highway Good Article nomination. The promotion of this article and 400-series highways would give Canada its first Good Topic and bring it within earshot of a Featured Topic. Will 2014 be the year?
