Including Anchorage in list of "Largest cities by population in the Pacific Northwest"[edit]

An IP removed the listing of Anchorage in the section Pacific Northwest#Largest cities by population in the Pacific Northwest. I initially restored it, but then re-removed that mention as it wasn't clear the inclusion criteria for cities, and I couldn't find a discussion of its inclusion in the archive (I apologize if I overlooked it). I am starting this discussion to determine consensus towards listing Anchorage in that section. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 02:13, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

the answer is very simple: Anchorage is not part of the Pacific Northwest; the "Cascadia" boundary shown (yuck btw, with that term presented as if accepted fact and not a "campaign") doesn't include it; normative concepts of the Pacific Northwest end at Yakutat Bay; the "Cascadia" extension shown northwest of that ends by the Kodiak Peninsula; Anchorage is not included. Same as with Salt Lake City, Edmonton, Calgary and San Francisco not being listed; they're not in teh Pacific Northwest. Same with Anchorage. Period.Skookum1 (talk) 04:28, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
