The subject of this article fails to meet the standards of WP:N due to lack of multiple, non-trivial references in reliable, third-party sources. There's no Wikipedia policy or consensus that states that the oldest anything is automatically notable by the encyclopedia's standards; numerous recent AfDs on the "oldest" individuals have been kept or deleted based on their individual merits. Thus we default to the general notability guidelines and any material of encyclopedic merit can be included on the many longevity-related lists on Wikipedia.

  • Delete. WP:ONEVENT, WP:MEMORIAL. She is not encyclopedic outside meriting inclusion in the list of centennarian Canadians or such (through whether such a list would be encyclopedic is dubious, too). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:23, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

How good is this one, EEng: "She was entitled to draw a pension in 1958, at the then-pensionable age of 70." CommanderLinx (talk) 13:59, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete doesn't meet WP:GNG. -- Ollie231213 (talk) 17:07, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Redirect to relevant list. Clearly non-notable and WP:NOPAGE. ~ RobTalk 18:34, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep or Redirect While Mrs. McCague might not fit the notability criteria, the fact that she was the oldest living Canadian should be enough to give her an entry in the List of Canadian supercentenarians, which could be expanded. 930310 (talk) 15:54, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Redirect to List of Canadian supercentenarians seems like a pretty straightforward result here, based on the coverage and inclusion criteria at that list (where she is already listed). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 03:13, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
