While we're at it, lets get rid of  MAR  and have the three proper 
ones...NS, NB and PEI...I've hated this forever...

Grouping provinces, states or territories together as one contest entity 
is meaningless...We're all seperate political entities, we all have 
seperate prefixes (except some VE1's in NB who wanted to keep their 
original call after VE9 was implemented)...I suspect the groupings 
originated because of ham population/individual entity being 
small...Well, ND and SD aren't grouped...Neither are WY and ID...

Would make more fun in SS, FD and others, that's for sure...
