The following counties still exist: Stormont County, Dundas County, and Glengarry County. The merger occurred only on an administrative/political level. If you drive through this area you will see provincial markers indicating you have entered, for example, Stormont County. Legal documents will still say, for example, "In the County of Dundas". The City of Cornwall, for example, is in the County of Stormont. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.15.175.222 (talk) 20:27, 2 February 2011 (UTC)[]

I don't understand why Lennox and Addington were removed as historic counties from this list. This source [1] states that Addington County and Lennox County were both formed in 1792 and later merged in 1800. The fact that it happened before Confederation is not particularly relevant.

Because Ontario was created in 1867? Back then it was Upper Canada. This article refers to historic counties of ONTARIO. Earl Andrew 02:03, 18 Oct 2004 (UTC)

First of all, there is absolutely no need to be condescending; I'm not an idiot, so please don't treat me like one. Yes, I realize that Ontario was known as Upper Canada/Province of Canada prior to 1867, but most of the counties on this list predate 1867, e.g., Carleton County was created in 1800, Dundas in 1792, Prince Edward in 1792, etc., etc. Darkcore 02:37, 18 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Oops sorry about that. I just wanted to point it out. And I just want to say, that you have been an extremely valuable person for this topic, good work! I just figured that since Lennox and Addington have been together for so long that they didn't belong here. However, there is no reason for me to get upset about it.

Dudes, you forgot Dufferin County. Jeremicus rex (talk) 03:29, 7 March 2010 (UTC)[]

Suffolk County (which was on Lake Erie) is miles and miles away from Ontario County. Just what was meant? Oxford County? Norfolk County?Oldontarian (talk) 15:21, 24 June 2012 (UTC)[]
