It's a common thing here to call it "America" as well. I was on another forum and it caused quite a big "battle" because it was seen as disrespectful and arrogant (by the Canadian and Mexican posters) that the U.S. citizens called themselves American's. As if they (we) thought we were the only ones that mattered.
haha...I have been in this argument. It comes down to geographical ignorance. And ownership. We are all americans. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, the United states, has ended up with the term as their own.

Then again, when I travel, or when my friends travel...travelling as a canadian has a lot of perks.
