Category:Canal locks in Canada[edit]

Currently this category has over five dozen images -- mainly with very poor indications in the image name where the canal lock exists. So I created Category:Canal locks on the Rideau Canal and Category:Canal locks on the Welland Canal. I am calling for discussion as to whether locks that are clearly on a particular canal should be moved to a specific category for locks on that canal -- leaving only unidentifiable locks in the parent category.

Right, that is the whole idea about deepening categories. Note that many canal locks are on a river (boundary) too as many rivers have parts that are managed like a canal. --Foroa (talk) 16:53, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes, this is standard. Keep up the good work. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 20:24, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
