Canada not independent in 1867[edit]

Canada did not become independent in 1867. Though the British Empire used the word to describe the Dominions in their relationship with United Kingdom, it only concerned internal matters, and then, not even all of them. Dominions were declared independent in 1931, but some took longer to sever ties. For instance, Supreme Court of Canada only became independent in 1949, Constitution of Canada only became independent in 1982, and today, specialists are still split on whether the canadian crown succession is independent from that of UK. I'll add a note in the page. Matju2 (talk) 15:56, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Labrador border not decided before 1927[edit]

This page's maps draw Labrador as if its border had been decided upon well before 1927, making it look like what has changed in 1927 is only in the St-Laurent gulf's hydrographic basin. In fact, maps wildly diverged on what belonged to whom in the Labrador basin itself (the one drawn as part of Newfoundland from 1870 to 1927), and it wasn't just because of transfers that happened in 1898 and 1912. Many maps of that time showed Newfoundland owning only a small portion of the Labrador basin. I'll add notes for that too. Matju2 (talk) 16:05, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Bug in Mediawiki ?[edit]

I just had to add a period at the end of one paragraph so that the following paragraph does not disappear. It's in the 1907 section, which I modified today. Please diagnose & report as a bug, if you know how to do that. Matju2 (talk) 17:03, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
