[Imports] Heads up: Building Canada 2020

Hi - just as an initial heads-up, Statistics Canada - effectively, the
Canadian Federal Government - wishes to have all of Canada's buildings
on OSM by 2020. This will entail major imports of municipal data and
superhuman efforts on the part of the LWG to keep track of and approve
all of Canada's many data licences. No imports have been started, but
there's an outline of the plan here:

I just wanted to make sure folks had a bit more warning (and hopefully,
more community input) than when the Ottawa data went in.

cheers,
 Stewart
