St. George[edit]

St. George has a population (2011) of 1543 and should be included in this list — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:39, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

St. George is not recognized as a population centre as defined by Statistics Canada. You can see St. George at List of towns in New Brunswick. Hwy43 (talk) 22:21, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Hwy43 is correct. "Population centre" is a specific thing with a specific definition, which is not synonymous with every populated place that exists at all. A place can have the necessary size of population but fail to have the necessary population density — according to St. George's community profile, its population density is 95.6/km2, which is a far cry from the 400/km2 that's the minimum standard for classification as an urban area. So if a place isn't on Statistics Canada's list of population centres, then it doesn't go on ours either. Bearcat (talk) 22:32, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
