He did say "the North American Continent", and it does get slightly wider farther north. (The Trans-Canada Highway, for example, is 7600 km long, or 4720 or so miles). North America is also very long north-to-south. http://www-nais.ccm.emr.ca:80/wwwnais/select/northamr/english/html/en-a.html gives a decent view of the continent. Don't let your mind be as narrow as the "contiguous" parts of your country. :-) Sean.
