The Onion used this as far back as 1999, at least
** ''[[http://www.theonion.com/content/node/38767 Canadian Girlfriend Unsubstantiated]]'': "And he said Audrey couldn't come here because she didn't get any time off from school for Christmas, since they don't observe it in Canada. At least not in the French-speaking parts like Alberta." Dates from 2000, making it the oldest Canada-specific example on this page, and therefore possibly the TropeNamer. ** ''[[http://www.theonion.com/articles/area-homosexual-thinks-hes-still-in-the-closet,690/ Area Homosexual Thinks He's Still In The Closet]]'' also uses this trope as part of a TransparentCloset.
