Western Canada's excellent highway classification

I was recently browsing around Canada in the OSM-Americana rendering and saw that Edmonton is a fabulous example of the highway classification hierarchy and expressway=yes tagging that we are also using south of the border. Edmonton’s regional connections are all highway=trunk|motorway while most intra-urban and suburban connectors are all highway=primary|secondary with expressway=yes on the enhanced construction. This is just a great example of how this tagging enables effective zoom-dependent rendering that can highlight important regional connections at low zoom while not turning cities into an unintelligible pile of spaghetti. :clap:

Winnipeg is also very well done.

Are there folks from :canada: Canada here that have been involved in highway classification efforts? It would be great to coordinate and link up additional important cross-border routes.
