    I am confused as to just what the concern is.

    Same here, K7MH. It's a Canadian contest but anyone can participate so I don't see what the problem of having WQ5OO working the contest is.

    I guess I thought there needed to be an identifier if he was that far from home QTH. I was just worried a Canada station pirated his NA call...

    I will go back under my rock.

    There would be if he were in Canada!
    As mentioned, anyone can operate in that contest. It is not limited to Canadians. He was probably calling CQ to get the attention of the Canadians that were working the contest.
    Usually in a contest like that, we work the Canadians for points and they work each other and everyone else for points. Sometimes they let anyone work anyone but have different point amounts for different areas. Maybe 3 for Canadian contacts and 1 point for all others or something like that. Usually a quick look at the rules will always sort out any concerns or questions.

    I understand anyone can call for a contact... At the time I though someone IN CANADA WAS USING HIS CALL. that is all.

    That doesn’t make sense in context. Canada is part of North America.
