The technique used to try and limit duplicate roads during the imports for
Alberta & Ontario sometimes would result in missing small connection type
roads such as ramps being excluded. When I ran RoadMatcher against the
existing OSM road network and the GeoBase road network often it couldn't
determine if some roads were a match or not.
