What's in a name?

Williams Government wants the name Newfoundland back on the map, or at least in the database of the Geographical Names Board of Canada, which takes its cue from the Newfoundland and Labrador Geographical Names Board, if it still exists.

Fair enough.

Perhaps, while Williams Government is giving the issue "appropriate consideration", someone at one, or both, of the geographical names boards can remind Williams Government that, its anti-conjunction fetish notwithstanding, there's an "and" in the geographical-board-name- and constitutionally-sanctioned three-word name of the province.
