 The screen capture that you attached to this ticket does not show a CA
 exit node. I am not an expert on all things related to hidden/onion
 services, but in that case the Canadian node is an interior node that is
 being used as part of the path to the onion service. See
 https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq.html.en#ChooseEntryExit, specifically
 the following paragraph:
  Note also that not every circuit is used to deliver traffic outside of
 the Tor network. It is normal to see non-exit circuits (such as those used
 to connect to hidden services, those that do directory fetches, those used
 for relay reachability self-tests, and so on) that end at a non-exit node.
 To keep a node from being used entirely, see ExcludeNodes and StrictNodes
 in the manual.
 Are you actually seeing US and CA nodes used as exits to the Internet? If
 not, then this bug is invalid.
