farbles (672915) writes "CIRA, Canada's Internet registry will be grandfathering all 3rd level (Provincial) domains (e.g. example.bc.ca) and 4th level (Municipal) domains (e.g. mytown.on.ca) on October 4th, 2010. No new 3rd and 4th level domains can be registered after then and any current ones that expire will be gone for good. The reason is due to CIRA's move to EPP-based registry system. Join me in a toast to the provinces, we'll miss you on the web!"
