CT Gang,
Thanks for the many responses to my query about the new ON Sections.
When I read the following, I thought they might have meant THIS year since
it is this weekend, but they apparently mean NEXT YEAR's FD:
ARRL Field Day does not use multipliers, but Ontario stations will send new Section abbreviations as part of their exchanges. 
So, NO changes yet to FD.DAT.  It must have been my OCD nagging me to
make sure our FD Computers were ready!!  HI-HI
TNX/73/GLonFD,     Bob K8BL

N0AX has reported (for ARRL) that the new sections will NOT be used this Field Day because they don't go into effect until September 1, 2012.

They will, however, be used in this year's Sweepstakes.
