That is certainly not the source data, it looks like a simple geojson
version of the OSM files.

As with the addresses the point is to assess the conversion process and
the quality and suitability of the original data. If you have fixed
errors in this data this should be documented and reviewed as part of
the import review. What especially matters is the original metadata
and specifications, like for example what a building is - something
like a loading ramp/platform for example is not a building or part of a
building in OSM but it might be in the source data set - which then
would require special consideration.

Overall this seems to work fine but it fails with some names like:
(unless this is the way it is written on the street signs of course)
Des Forets Avenue
Jeanne-d'Arc Boul. N. Boulevard North
There are discrepancies between the street names in the address nodes
and the road names in OSM by the way, mostly due to wrong names in OSM
(probably due to bad previous imports).
