I just noticed that GoogleEarth has Central Bedeque located in Newfoundland on the south shore just across from St Pierre and Miquelon! When I navigated to that little peninsula a link to the wicki for Central Bedeque lit up. Central Bedeque is also correctly located in GoogleEarth near the west end of PEI. So it's unique in being the only PEI town to be in two provinces at once! Releges 23:26, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

I found the same error, heh, what are the odds.

I see that there are streets and Churches labelled Bedeque in PEI, but no place marker. The coords (decimal, ick, but good enough) seem to jive with the place names.

It seems likely that the Google earth place-mark has erroneous coords.

As an aside, there is a Baddeck in Cape Breton, in Nova Scotia in between these two spots on the Bras D'Or Lakes. 46°06′0″N 60°45′15″W

Coordinates[edit]

The coordinates need the following fixes: Current latitude and longitude shows Central Bedeque in Newfoundland, it should be here...
