It will be great to see what you recommend. I haven't made a final decision,
nor really talked to the talk-ca list about what the 'National Protected
Areas' database that is (going to) be ready for import in Canada.

I have a sample

We have 4 main levels of parks.  ... National Parks (run by Parks Canada)
Provincial Parks (run by each provincial parks organization, (BC has 'BC
Parks' Ontario has 'Ontario Parks & Recreation')
and regional parks, such as capital Region District, Cowichan Valley
Regional District, Nanaimo Regional District),
and local  parks such as Victoria Parks, Saanich Parks & Rec,

And aborigional lands is it's own protected area also,
and a sample area is here http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/40490549
(contact that user for details)

And for the national dataset, it's sorted into 6 types, feel free to change
it based on what you see internationally is the standard, and change that
chart, (that was a guess, just from myself)

I put a 'watch' on it, so i can tell when it was updated. :)

The fixed up page looks great so far, ta,

P.S. the user has a re-direct which i think its not needed)

Are you in contact with user, who did some edits of Place names template
fixing up, it makes the pages look better?.

I'll jump on IRC about that later, just figured it mention it here 1st. :)
