I happen to know for a fact that there are significant amounts of red spruce in this area, in my neck of the woods (Townships).

Great little mountain for hiking, one of my favorites around here. Tallest peak in Southern Quebec actually... It's even got its own website:

Again, though - sure, at a certain level of detail, we're starting to see peculiarities of the Acadian forest, but as MonctonRad said, they're subtle and absolutely cannot justify a separate category while everything else is lumped together as "Eastern Mixed Forest". That's been the point all along, and I'm sure you understand it very well
