Strait of Georgia = Salish Sea

There are several news stories over the past couple of days that indicate there is some political will to rename the Strait of Georgia. It would become The Salish Sea. It is a lovely idea, but it seems to suggest that the Salish Sea may not include Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

A couple of comments come to mind.

First, regardless of the name on British Columbia maps, it is The Salish Sea, and has been for a time that is longer than the current governments that claim the naming rights.

Second, it would probably be more meaningful if the federal governments of Canada and the United States, as well as the State of Washington and the Province of British Columbia and the Coast Salish people all agreed to officially naming the entire waterway The Salish Sea.
