Hello,

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Canadian_tagging_guidelines

States that the highway=trunk should be used in all highways that are 
controlled by the national highway service.

I have noticed that a lot of highways in Ontario (and probably the rest 
of the country) are tagged highway=motorway instead of highway=trunk. Is 
it safe to assume that these are tagged in error and should be fixed?

This includes 401 from Windsor to Quebec border, the QEW, highway 11 to 
north bay, etc..

(A list of the roads maintained by the NHS is listed on page 37 of the 
referenced pdf at the url above)
