The territorial name is made-up of Canso and Frontenac, which are the two slopes of the river which form the territory. Canso is named after the Nova Scotian town, while Frontenac was named after Louis de Buade de Frontenac, a French soldier and the former Governor-General of New France. Both names were chosen by Jayden Lycon as they sounded cool, and they do not have any relative meaning to the land claimed.
The use of a hyphen
When Canso-Frontenac was a territory, it was officially "Canso Frontenac", without a hyphen in the middle. However, a hyphen was generally used by Iustus citizens and de facto by the government. If the territory gets incorporated into a town, it plans to change its name to the Town of Canso-Frontenac, which reflects the change in governance as well as adding a hyphen between Canso and Frontenac.
Jayden Lycon spoke with Austin Jaax on the possibility of claiming the land for the Empire of Iustus. Lycon, at the time, was the Chief-Justice of Iustus and Minister of Foreign Affairs. Austin Jaax approved the request and wrote an Act of Parliament proclaiming the event, and the territory was claimed by the Aenderian Coast Guard on behalf of the Empire of Iustus on 1 December 2019. It was later incorporated as a territory after the passing of the Canso Frontenac Act.
On 23 April 2020, Lycon had an interest in incorporating the territory into a town. He later spoke to Jaax, but he informed him that a town requires people to reside in them. Lycon later decided to annex one of his doorframes in his bedroom, which had not been claimed by Aenderia. As the doorframe was in Lycon's home, it met the requirements of a town and is being incorporated as of right now.
As Canso-Frontenac is currently a territory of Iustus, it is administered directly by the Government of Iustus and does not have a town council. It also does not gain any delegation status in the House of Representatives. However, if it incorporates as a town, it is planned to have a town council and Jayden Lycon being Lord Mayor. It is unknown how many delegates are planned to be assigned to Canso-Frontenac at this time if it incorporates as a town.
A majority of citizens travel to Canso-Frontenac through walking, as it is connected to a trail starting from Point Cupertino or McCowan Road and ending on McNicoll Avenue, in the Finch Hydro Corridor. It is also connected to the Highland Creek, allowing small ship access like the Aenderian Coast Guard ship SV Niantic to pass through. Furthermore, it is accessible by road, and the Toronto Transit Commission routes 39 Finch, 129 McCowan North, 21 Brimley, and 42 Cummer stopping near Canso-Frontenac.
