St. Mary's, Nova ScotiaMunicipality of the District of St. Mary's – move over redirect per established consensus at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Nova Scotia#Municipal districts are actually district municipalities (potential article moves) Hwy43 (talk) 01:19, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

This is a contested technical request (permalink). Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:42, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Hwy43: But add ", Nova Scotia" :: there are very many places across the world named after St.Mary. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:43, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
As this is the only possible topic in the world that would compete for the title of "Municipality of the District of St. Mary's", disambiguation beyond that is not necessary. It is a unique name unless there is another municipality out there with the exact same official legal name. Hwy43 (talk) 06:15, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Agree with Hwy43, there is only one place called Municipality of the District of St. Mary's on earth, so disambiguation would be redundant and go against encyclopedic convention of parsimonious titles. Mattximus (talk) 22:32, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Agreed, move it. At best a disambig is in order. WayeMason (talk) 23:45, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
