The other thing to do is check the history of the entries on some Canadian 
cities.  Although it's not exact, it would likely return at least a few 
Canadians.  For instance, the article [[Quebec City]] was started on 
3/27/2001 by Stephen Gilbert.  A quick check of Stephen Gilbert's user page 
says he's in New Brunswick.  Voila, it's proven.
