Ontario shares two small land borders (and a long water border) with Nunavut. The land border can be seen here:,-82.2560075,14z — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:41, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

NE vs E part of Ontario[edit]

Although NE might technically a subset of East, in Ontario they each refer to different locations. Eastern Ontario is east of Central Ontario, which is Toronto and the 905 belt, so it's (roughly) the region from about Kingston to the Quebec border and north to maybe North Bay. Northeastern Ontario is (roughly) everything north of that region, bounded by St James bay on the west. Anyways, bevause they are considered distinct zones, I reverted the changed that removed the distinction between the two areas. --Ca2james (talk) 04:17, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Flag icons[edit]

There has been some disputes to have flag icons in the infobox on various cities WP:INFOBOXFLAG states: "Human geographic articles – for example settlements and administrative subdivisions – may have flags of the country and first-level administrative subdivision in infoboxes; however, physical geographic articles – for example, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, and swamps – should not. Where a single article covers both human and physical geographic subjects (e.g. Manhattan), or where the status of the territory is subject to a political dispute, the consensus of editors at that article will determine whether flag use in the infobox is preferred or not." Meaning that cities, being human geographic articles could potentially be permitted to have flag icons. In addition there are many other articles such as New York City, Moncton, Fredericton, Las Vegas, etc. that have flags in the infoboxes. I am interested to see you input. Thanks.

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Internation boundary[edit]

I changed "all but a small part of Ontario's 2,700 km (1,678 mi) border with the United States follows inland waterways" to remove "but a small part" to leave "all of Ontario's 2,700 km (1,678 mi) border with the United States follows inland waterways". If you know of any land in that border, please post its location here, and revert the article. Thanks, Nick Beeson (talk) 13:54, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
