The Northwest Territories split on April 1 <year not given> into two provinces; the eastern and central part are now called Nunavut.
The western part. . . well the western part has a sense of humor if not a sense of cohesiveness. When the split was agreed on, there was to be a vote on a new name. One of the most popular names submitted was "Bob". But the organizers of the vote refused to list "Bob". So people wrote it in. It came in second place, after Northwest Territories.
