Kitchener, Ontario is listed as having a little over 400000 inhabitants. This number is erroneous; I'm not sure where it comes from, but the city of Kitchener itself links to the correct numbers: links to which, as of this writing, has the 2013 population as 233700.

It is possible that the current number for Kitchener comes from data for the Region of Waterloo as a whole (Kitchener is the largest city in it, a bit bigger than Waterloo), but it's long ago that the region had 400000 inhabitants - by the same source, it is currently at 563000. Also, the Region is a different entity than the city of Kitchener.

I tried to change this manually, but it is restricted to users of a certain level.
