From VfD:

Just an advertisement and a link to a company website.—Rory 17:13, Aug 26, 2004 (UTC)

  • This company is part of the Canadaian S&P/TSX index (formerly TSE 300). I am attempting to add all the companies on that index. I was using categories instead of a list. If it is more appropriate to make a list then I apologize and please let me know. --YUL89YYZ 18:34, Aug 26, 2004 (UTC)
To clarify: I couldn't tell if this company was notable so I decided to list it here and see what other Wikipedians think. The best thing you can do is to make it clear (here or, better, in the article) what makes this company notable. Is it particularly big or old? Does it hit the news regularly? Is it known to people who aren't local or in the industry? When I listed this it was basically just a link, so I couldn't judge.—Rory 18:55, Aug 26, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep: As written now, it establishes the company as a major commercial concern and a significant presence in the world. Geogre 02:35, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I've added several facts that I think make it notable, and am working with the newcomer to try and avoid such misunderstandings in the future. It is a publicly traded company, which, in my mind is notable enuf, but it is also on what seems to be the equivalent of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, plus has some 'firsts' within its industry.

I'm not sure on the policy here. I'm convinced of it's place now that the article has been expanded. Can I simply remove the listing or does it have to stay here all week? Is it enough to just remove the {{vfd}} tag?—Rory 18:37, Aug 27, 2004 (UTC)
    • There are cases of "early removal," but those have to be kind of exaggerated cases (someone nominating George Washington or something. Just remove the VfD tag and let it sit. No one's going to delete the article without a loss of vote, and I don't see the votes coming. Geogre 21:12, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
      • Keep. But I've replaced the VfD notice. It should only be removed if the vote is closed early, which seems appropriate in this case. I don't think there's any problem with the nominator doing this if there are no votes to delete outstanding. I do think there's a problem with having an article listed here but no VfD notice.
