It was referred to as the Dark Continent in books and films for a long time, but why someone would call it 'the black continent' is beyond me. And I found no reference to such language.

I'm thinking that being based out of Montreal, they may just have used the wrong translation from an original French write-up. "Noir" can mean either "dark" or "black".

Also believe that they found it later or heard about it from readers and replaced it with an alternate descriptor. Now reads "in the rapidly growing continent".

Prefer to talk about aircraft, but this might offer some perspective...Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness (1899)' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_Darkness

Mark Weiser - really? You think Canadians, in general lack geographical knowledge? Hell, we're a country populated by people of the world you idiot.
