In my previous long, boring message, I did make an error.
Here's the fix.
CQ WW 160m
CQ WW RTTY
These contests all define provinces and territories as
multipliers. But they all make one senseless mistake: they
all define Newfoundland as one multiplier and Labrador as
another. This is complete and utter nonsense, and has no
basis in history or law. For reasons best known to them,
they will not fix their mistake. So, pleased be armed with
the knowledge that for these contests, these are the 14
Canadian multipliers you can count. (A) is for the name of
the multiplier, (B) is for the usual prefixes, (C) is the
best abbreviation for the multiplier and (D) is for others
you might hear.

Too much detail, too little proofreading, too late at night.
