Template imported without attribution, likely from en.wikipedia. Doesn't work anyway; User:נהוראיי מבורך כחלון, the importer, tried to use it on Italian phrasebook to no avail. Also we should delete Template:Link GA/doc. Powers (talk) 14:26, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

I understand that policy says it's okay to lump two small neighboring towns together in the same article, but I think crossing provincial lines to do so is a bridge too far - particularly when it messes with our breadcrumb structure. The article tries to justify it by saying that "while Blanc-Sablon is technically part of Québec, as of 2014 the town has proposed to secede from the province and join Labrador", but realistically, the chances of that ever actually happening are roughly equal to the chances of Vermont seceding from the United States.
Policy says to redirect real places, but the question then becomes whether to redirect to Blanc-Sablon or Forteau. I say split the content of the current article into two articles separated by the provincial border, then delete the original.
- If we delete the history, we also need to discard the content. Red Bay is notable because of the UNESCO listing, but all that's in Blanc Sablon is a ferry crossing from Newfoundland to Labrador. The road westward is a dead end, and the village itself is too tiny to matter. K7L (talk) 01:37, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't make so much sense to have such article considering that those islands are just two:
- Redirect to Turks and Caicos Islands. There is no reason at all to just delete the article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:37, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
- As you prefer. My point is that is just an empty article that will remain empty (remember to correct all the wikilinks). --Andyrom75 (talk) 10:39, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
- Sure, Andyrom. Per policy however, we don't delete real places, but redirect or solve otherwise. You can just plunge ahead or discuss on the talk page next time. As this is such a clear-cut case which doesn't really belong here, I just went ahead and made the redirect. JuliasTravels (talk) 11:52, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
