But I've never seen a silent 'k' anywhere else, and for no perceptible reason.
I'm not sure Fergie Jenkins would be the person looking for the next great white guy.
On silent k's and such ... place names don't count and quite possibly the locals just got lazy about pronouncing the k ... and I'll go out on a limb and guess that "Etobicoke" is not English in origin anyway.
tobicoke received its name from an entirely different source - the Mississaugan word "wadoopikaang" (say it a few times.) Surveyor Augustus Jones spelled the word "atobecoake" in an early assessment of the area.
