Shouldn't this be the Canadian Rockies. The Rockies are in the USA too... (at least I've linked my pages to the Canadian Rockies entry...) Use the most obvious title where possible. KJ

I full on agree. This redirect should be reversed, ie: Rocky Mountains (Canada) should redirect to Canadian Rockies. It is not nearly as awkward. - bulliver 19:09, 17 March 2006 (EST)

I moved this per the discussion in Talk:Canada. -- Evan 15:57, 10 Nov 2003 (PST)


Rocky mountains really should be 1 article since it's all the same mountain. Kingjeff 15:46, 31 Dec 2005 (EST)

Canadian Rockies Region[edit]

Discussion moved from Talk:British Columbia

Looking at this article, I have to say that the Canadian Rockies region really doesn't make sense to me. Everything in the British Columbia section of that article is located in the Kootenays, which makes that somewhat redundant. To further complicate matters, Travel Alberta (the offical Alberta DMO) lists Canadian Rockies as one of the major regions of Alberta. So, would it possibly make more sense to convert Canadian Rockies so that it refers purely to the region in Alberta, and remove all mention of it from British Columbia?

I think Rocky Mountains (Canada) is one of the odd standalone regions that sometimes occur when an area doesn't fit into our more hierarchical regions but is still something that travelers expect to find an article about. Great Lakes and Lake Tahoe are two similar articles - both overlap existing regions (Tahoe straddles California & Nevada, the Great Lakes straddle Canada & the US). We currently just don't have a really good way of handling such places, and end up keeping the articles as informational material, but don't really treat them as part of the regional hierarchy. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:59, 22 July 2007 (EDT)
Hmm, I can see your point. Keeping that in mind, I think what I might do is just put the Columbia-Rockies and East Kootenays regions as a sub-region of Canadian Rockies in addition to their current listing under Kootenays. The current list of cities is a little random. (And if it gets comprehensive it'll be rather large) Ame detoile 15:23, 22 July 2007 (EDT)
Looks good. The Alps article takes a similar approach. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:35, 22 July 2007 (EDT)
