Thanks J.P.

If at some point there is a more clear boundary maybe someone could 
update the wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/New_Brunswick to 
give the rest of us more clear guidance.

Or I suppose one could guess by looking at the existing tags there.  (I would assume Fredericton is English area?)  If we have a list then could update the NB wiki page. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/New_Brunswick
