Ottawa not listed in time zone cities?

Asked by Norm MacNeil on 2009-04-27

Does anyone know why Ottawa (the capital of Canada) is not in the list of cities for time zone selection (during initial installation)? There seems to be a bunch of other cities (Moncton, Thunder Bay, Goose Bay) which are not even provincial capitals (no offence, guys) but are shown. I've just downloaded the latest version (9.0.4) and this still is the case.

I asked the guys at #ubuntu-installer ;
It wasn't in the list of cities provided by the upstream list ( from tzdata2009f.tar.gz from
It's possible to add it, but it would make more sense to add upstream.
