Should be: Cape Breton, not cape brenton.
Should be St. John's, not Saint John ( in Newfoundland)
Suggestion for Evangeline: Annapolis Valley or Evangeline Trail
Suggestion for Sunrise Trail: Halifax, Antigonish, Guysborough

It's looking really good though. I'm not great at figuring out borders. I am really good at making suggestions once someone else has filled in the blanks. Any other geography questions, I'd be more than willing to help out.

You can almost see my house... at the eastern tip of Cape Breton!

just curious, what exactly does unit_2 for this map?

i mean at least for japan he came up with the idea (not first since there were many others before him that suggested it), but here it's not even his idea since gozar suggested it.

the cities are the terits. just connect them with lines like the midkemdil map

and the colours represent the continents

oh and the province capitals give +1 as well as the national capital

How many territories on this one? Does not seem like many.

Also it should be "River Valley" in NB, not "River Falley"

Personally, I would still rather it have a more "maritimes" feel. Right now, Quebec seems to be the focus.
