I live in BC, I have used the full "British Columbia" once for every twenty times I've said BC. It's known as BC, throughout BC.

I think PEI, and BC should be accepted because I would actually say those in conversation. NWT I am less convinced, if I used that in conversation, no one would have any idea what i was talking about.

As a native of Nebraska (NE), I wish I could get a dollar for every time I've seen Nebraska abbreviated "NB." Not a lot of folks realize the two-digit abbreviation applies not only to the US and Canada, but to territories (Virgin Islands are "VI") and to the states in Mexico as well. It's a complete North American naming scheme.

100% mostly because we've been studying Canada for the last week or so in Geography in school. Would make it a little bit harder if the province was highlighted and then you would have to name it.

To be honest, guys, "PEI" should /not/ be accepted as Prince Edward Island. It's common to just say it like that, but really, are you all so lazy that you can't type out the full name? I don't see anyone complaining about how British Columbia should be shortened to "BC," or Northwest Territories to "NWT." Seriously...

racist? sounds more of a jab toward a nationality than a race
delete
Jan 3, 2014
(65)
Race is an artificial construct, same as nationality. Often the two things coincide and the difference is really pretty meaningless when it comes to things like personal bigotry. "American" is as much a "race" as German or Mexican. Which word would you prefer I use? "Prejudiced against a nationality" is a bit of a mouthful.

Perhaps "xenophobia" is the most applicable? Dictionary definitions of xenophobia include: deep-rooted, irrational hatred towards foreigners (Oxford English Dictionary; OED), unreasonable fear or hatred of the unfamiliar (Webster's). I can find no reference for the mere ignorance of other cultures.
delete
Mar 23, 2014
(44)
Xenophobia implies foreigners being feared/hated on one's home soil. England's hatred of France is not xenophobia. Neither is American-bashing. But I wouldn't call it racism, which is usually a color issue at its basest. It's bigoted, and prejudicial. Does it need a prettier label?
