Hi,

I am now reviewing the *addr**:city* tag.   Seems we are not very consistent how we use it.  For example, Toronto:


 110707 City of Toronto    9603 Toronto       4 North York, Toronto       2 Toronto, ON       2 toronto       1 York, Toronto       1 Torontoitalian       1 Toronto;City of Toronto       1 Toronto

Which is correct?  "*City of **Toronto*" or "*Toronto*"?   I would think "Toronto"???   Why do people pick one over the other?

There are more than 7000 unique names in Canada.  Below are the top 50.  Ottawa is not on the top of the list because there was a local decision to not include the addr:city tag during address addition as there there are many different "city" names since almagamation. (The official Canada Post address still has the old municipality name prior to amalgamation while the City of Ottawa works through de-duplicating street names).

110707 City of Toronto 100066 Gatineau 82606 Montréal 79191 Surrey 71932 Edmonton 51096 Québec 45716 City of Hamilton 37232 Mississauga 35763 Laval 32029 Dartmouth 30969 Kamloops 27234 City of London 25393 City of Brampton 22881 Municipality of Chatham-Kent 18534 Saguenay 17921 Lévis 17251 City of Vaughan 16929 City of St. Catharines 16796 Town of Markham 16592 City of Kawartha Lakes 16403 Trois-Rivières 16086 City of Thunder Bay 15788 Oakville 15335 Sherbrooke 14787 City of Niagara Falls 14338 Norfolk County 13966 City of Kingston 13939 Fredericton 12085 City of Oshawa 11966 Saanich 11950 Calgary 11382 Terrebonne 11332 Richmond Hill 11321 City of Barrie 11080 Town of Fort Erie 10986 Cole Harbour 10981 City of Burlington 10641 Town of Whitby 10635 Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu 10455 Drummondville 10347 City of Guelph 9906 Municipality of Clarington 9666 City of Brantford 9603 Toronto 9487 Shawinigan 9384 City of Sarnia 9380 Red Deer 9102 City of Windsor 9044 City Of Sault Ste. Marie 8466 Sudbury
