North American ANAGRAM SWARMS: 'R-E-P-U-B-L-I-C-A-N V-O-T-E-R-S'
To start, here's a review of 'wordplay maps' for the American locales implicated in this anagram swarm, previously posted. Considering the large number of entries on each map, a rather small font was required, so remember that all you have to do to expand an image is to click on it. (And, remember that to get out of expanded mode, you will need to click on the little 'x' in the upper right hand corner.)
And now for the Canadian sites ...
These locales are designated in a more formal internationally used format, with the national designation (the two-letter abbreviation 'CA' for Canada) at the end of each locale (town + province). Interesting comparisons can be made with the initial map that focused on American (U.S.) locales, and used 'US' to terminate the location's address.
In this treatment, we have left out the national designation (CA) at the end of each destination. This format represents the familiar form of postal address used by Canadians when sending domestic mail. Note that the provinces of Alberta (AB) and British Columbia (BC) have now joined in the fun.
And there are even more!
In Canada, we seem to have the propensity to name many of our towns and cities to highlight adjacent geographical features, e.g. Niagara Falls, Goose Bay, Rankin Inlet, Rainy River, Trois Rivieres, etc. The above collection honours that propensity, eh?
