What is the longest community name in Canada, and how many characters is it?

 

Just remember I am looking for a community and not a township or municipality.

:D Ok I've been told to answer this by binrat :D

 

The answer is Cape St. George-Petit Jardin-Grand Jardin-De Grau-Marches Point-Loretto which are a bunch of small towns that joined together I'm guessing. I'd hate to be the guy who paints the signs :)

 

Here is a map of the location

 

 

and the next question is....
