Bob Landry place names part two (59* d) RE: place names part two 04 May 99

More Canadian place names for you, eh?

Come By Chance, Newfoundland is mentioned in the earlier thread. To that I would add Dildo, Tickle Cove, Heart's Delight, Heart's Content, Conception Bay and finally Placentia (its original name was Plaisance before the English took Newfoundland from the French.)

In Nova Scotia, you'll find the Pubnicos, a series of several villages named Pubnico, East Pubnico, Lower East Pubnico, Middle Pubnico, West Pubnico and, well you get the idea.

There's St-Louis de HaHa and Ste-Tite in Quebec. Toronto has been nick-named Hogtown and Toronto the Good, among other, by denizens of pther parts of Canada.

Finally, how about Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta.
