Yes, this is a place for an event generated by a.com from its Canada Census databases. Canada is officially bilingual so that is the way a location is recorded on the census. And, yes, a.com could do us all a service by standardizing its database place names because the complete name is unwieldy and inconsistent with common place naming conventions.

As to place names that are truly bilingual, the user should have their choice of preferred language, e.g., Three Rivers and Trois Rivieres, a sizeable town in Quebec, known both ways to both language groups over centuries.
