Sorry Russ. Atlantic Province YES.
Maritime NO.

Glad you daughter had fun.

Really? forgive my ignorance but what's the difference?

The maritime prov.s are

Prince Edward Island
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia

Newfoundland and Labrador are considered an Atlantic Province but not a part of the maritime's...

Correct me if I'm wrong, Ivan, but I think it's a timing thing.

PEI, NB and NS have been part of Canada for darn near ever, whereas NL+L only became a part of the country in the mid-1900s.

March 31, 1949 is the date. Here ends the history lesson....

I think that we are too far away and far too big to be called a "Maritime" province. Atlantic, yes.... Maritime, not really.... :)

It's all Newfoundlander semantics....

I think its maritime semantics... a way to have a separate group outside of the Atlantic provinces (ie. Newfoundland and Labrador) to make deals with the Government of Canada collectively.
