    LCBO is the acronym you need to know in Ontario.
    Remember, it isn't just a province, it is a time zone.

    I agree, and have never understood that. Canada, USA and Mexico are all part of North America.

    Probably because it is short for "The United States of America." Sort of like how folks from the Dominion of Canada call themselves Canadians, from the Republic of France call themselves French, the United Mexican States call themselves Mexicans, etc.

    And no forgetting Central and South America, I suppose they could be annoyed about it too
