Now that there is a source clearly defining the northern limit of the Salish Sea (BCGNIS) it is possible to make a map showing the sea's boundary as defined. BCGNIS cites this report, which includes a map, as the source of the boundary definition. The only odd thing is the western boundary, Cape Flattery to Carmanah Point. The report's map shows an odd pointy bit extending west from the straight line between the cape and point. I am guessing a straight line would be better, which would at least be in keeping with BCGNIS's text about it. In any case, I archived the old talk page here--it didn't seem relevant now that a couple years have passed and the name fully official--and wanted to post about how a clear map would be useful. Or just to remind myself to make it, someday. Pfly (talk) 09:12, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
Also, while I'm thinking about it, this map has been mentioned before as possibly useful here. It is attractive and might be acceptable to use on Wikipedia, maybe, or maybe if the creator gave explicit permission. Earlier today I thought about writing him and asking if it would be okay to use here. But then I found BCGNIS's explicit definition of the northern boundary of the Salish Sea. It differs significantly from this map's depiction, which includes waters too far north, all of Toba Inlet and Bute Inlet, etc. Pfly (talk) 09:33, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
Revising and improving
This article is incredibly weak mainly cause it only focuses on the name. This is, of course, ridiculous, and we don't treat any other waterbodies that way. I've started by rephrasing the intro to say that the Salish Sea is the network of waterways rather than the previous Salish Sea was coined to refer the the network of waterways. I'll put in some work on adding sections on the history, geology and life in the sea. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 12:23, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Apologies, don't know much how this works. I noted this: "The French name Mer de Salish is also official in Canada." This links to http://apps.gov.bc.ca/pub/bcgnws/names/53200.html which uses the "des Salish" (i.e. not "de"). The Fr. page references both and doesn't substantiate why sometimes "de" is used. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:32, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
