Thanks for taking my question Mark.
All of Canada is 888.
"In 2000, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications
Commission eliminated all Canadian provincial LATAs in favor of a single
LATA for Canada (888). "

Yup. LERG6 plus it needs LERG7, I think to get the horizontal &
vertical. LERG8 is optional for long names (which are still not unique
across the country).

It does look like I'll have to modify the supplied perl script to:
* either generate unique per province LATA, or
* include the province in the 30 char rate center name or
* Use NPA NXX in LCA file.
