Findmypast moves to correct Canada error

Findmypast made a mistake on Friday when it listed Canadian records under the US heading, and added insult to injury by announcing the Canadian records with a US flag logo.
I complained on Friday, called them in London. Others had complained too. The person on the help desk was aware of the issue and apologised.
As you can see from the image, the title now reads United States and Canada records. The A-Z of Records still only has the US title but includes Canadian records.  A way to go yet.
Hopefully as they accumulated more records they'll give Canada its own site, instead of forwarding the .ca site to .com.  If they can host a separate site why not .ca?
