Here is a list of the most overpriced .ca domains currently listed on GoDaddy Auction.

In my humble opinion not one of these domains is properly priced.

Not sure how andrew.ca is up there. I remember learning how Andrew.ca was restricted/reserved for a municipality in Alberta, and GD requires everyone to verify listings as far as I know, so how did it get listed?

On that note, has the CIRA a) taken back all the error registrations, and (aka Richard) b) got back to us when the "last province registration expired" domains are being released?
 
a) I believe they have taken them all back but hard to be certain; and
b) no updates yet about any releases.
 
My guess is that the seller listed it when CIRA released all the names this year by mistake.

On second thought, I don't think this can be the reason.

Geo/municipal domains weren't affected during that specific incident, so it can't be it. Only domains that were restricted because of provincial/third-level registrations became available again by mistake.

I wonder how many of these domains were "sold on push" before the CIRA got wind of the problem and started re-locking them?

None. I registered most of them, like well over a thousand. I wasn't about to go down that route and make a bigger mess by trying to quickly sell something. I didn't even respond to inquiries on those domains as I knew most (if not all) would be revoked. In the end, all were revoked. Another member here reg'd close to a hundred. I don't think he sold any either.
 
Seems like Andrew.ca was registered only yesterday and was there another new breach at CIRA? Really curious to know now. If so, this could be embarrassing.

How did you catch it so promptly @MapleDots Was that an alert you had in place?

This is getting very stupid, and it's only a matter of time (if it hasn't happened already) until some scammer "push sells" one of these restricted domains for $$$ and creates an even bigger mess.

Yet another reason why I don't buy domains without a transfer code.
 
I am not aware of it as yet and waiting on @MapleDots to respond to my request. I will wait till then to ask those who are responsible to provide a confirmation. I hope not and that I can only wish.

What the actual hell is this. You're telling me that someone somehow registered this domain only a matter of hours after my post bringing it up? When it was restricted and still showing as such on whois? Only logical explanation would be the municipality finally went ahead and registered it but somehow I doubt that could happen so quick.

Very surprised indeed @Esdiel . You opened a can of worms it looks. It's so enriching to know that there are several vigilant members in the community, such as yourself. I salute everyone.

I wish I could say it was anything other than luck on my part, I am currently in buy mode for top end one word .ca's and in order to find them I simply sorted by highest price and Buy Now. The list came out pretty mediocre so I thought I would publish it, that is it nothing more so anything you see is there for no other reason than my original search.

Wow.. thanks for that @MapleDots Seems like you are very busy these days and still you find the time for all this. Amazing how you could manage your time so efficiently.
 
Give yourself a pat on the back too @Eby.

You’re the one who double checked and actually discovered the change/new registration.

Thank you kindly @Esdiel .
Love the .CA space too much!! ;)
 
andrew.ca is on serverHold though, so likely the registration is still pending approval by CIRA.
