Requested moves, mergers and splits
Please add new requests to the top of the list. Please link to a discussion of the requested move on the relevant talk page
- Elections Nunavut - Really needs sources added!
- New Democratic Party of Manitoba - needs to be updated to cover the events of the party's term in office under Premier Selinger, including the leadership challenge.
- Greg Selinger, current Premier of Manitoba, needs to be updated to cover the events of his premiership and particularly the provincial sales tax increase and subsequent events leading to the current leadership challenge and its outcome.
- Toronto municipal election, 2014 needs to be updated with election results for all wards
- Beaver Lake Cree Nation has a huge clutter problem from "harv" templates not being properly placed in ref tags. This is what I've done so far but there's more, and I'm tired of it. Why was this done this way and by whom?`
- Das Echo - didn't tag it yet, but needs cleanup for refimprove and also clumsy language, evidently German idioms translated straight across; I'm wondering if it's an adaptation of the German Wikipedia article, though I haven't looked at that yet and my German's not good enough to analyze it that way. Has a bit of POV and peacock in it too.
- Tara Teng - grossly overwritten and UNDUE, promotional, peacock, trivia and more; removing Crime, Sex Worker and other extraneous wikiprojects. Very much a "fan" article by its principal author.
- Potlatch Ban - I've created the missing Potlatch Law, Anti-Potlatch Law...Reason this is here is that it's just a start, and there are a-stylistic caps and other issues, including no mention of the 1922 revisions to the law which made it more severe. Athabaskan Potlatch is a newer article, something of a POV fork (though OMR who created the first one admits it's mostly Kwakwaka'wakw in information; potlatching in different peoples was different, especially in the Interior), and full of bad geography/history but earnest, also in need of cleanup; both need expansion and more citations/further reading. Placed IPNA and WPCAN templates, high importance on the first WP, mid on WPCAN, and history/politics/bc switches. It's also an orphan, with only two or three articles linking to it, yet I know it's mentioned in other aboriginal history politics articles, just not linked there.
- Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada/Vital Canadian articles - Looking for a project? Notwithstanding the importance of the subjects, many of the articles on this list are in dire need of improvement.
- Television in Canada looks like it may need a lot of work. Although I haven't read the whole article, so I don't know if it even deserves all those maintenance tags, but there's a lot of them. Anti-Quebec sentiment is pretty tagged-up as well. -- œ™ 18:51, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
- Downtown Eastside - has cleanup tag already; rambling, mixed content, "article bloat", and the "organizations" section though in text comes off like a directory/commentary....and Chinatown/Gastown/Japantown content is jumbled up with content on what the common usage of the term means (vs. the city designation, which isn't just Hastings). Needs a chainsaw and de-directoryfying.Skookum1 (talk) 08:04, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
- East Vancouver - added cleanup tag .... lots of uncited claims/statements, jumbled logic, unlinked linkables, rambling content, needs some de-POVing/editorializing.Skookum1 (talk) 02:07, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
- I made some expansions this morning by copying over material and refs from Wilson's article; issue remains whether it should be "Judi Tyabji" or by her current married name "Judi Tyabji Wilson"....still needs improvements, see talkpage.Skookum1 (talk) 20:43, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
- Articles in Category:Nuu-chah-nulth need cleanup after non-MOS expansion.
- Dockside Green - sustainable development in Victoria, needs a lot of work. Sources have been identified on the talk page, but have not been implemented in the article. See Talk:Dockside Green.

- I've updated the how to fix backlog banner to point to the Canadian /Assessment page not the WP Assessment. Also added the assessbacklog banner for those interested in this part of the cleanup and for the Walterbot cleanup list. Argolin (talk) 01:00, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
- I have done a lot of work on the cannabis article, but mostly edits and new content in the Legalization and Commodity sections. This article was written long ago, years before the Federal Government announced that it would be legalized. So, there is still a ton of content on old court decisions, for example. IMHO, these could still be mentioned as part of the history of cannabis, but do we need so much space devoted to them? Peter K Burian (talk) 00:09, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
