Canada-wide Obits at Genealogy Quebec

One of the gems Gail Dever, well known for her blog Genealogy à la carte, dropped during her presentation in Ottawa on Saturday was the free obit database from Genealogy Québec. It boasts "You are looking for an obituary in Canada? It's here !"
You can search by last name, first name, year, month and day and text. I found three people originating from my home town in England by searching its name in the text field. However, the search balks at phrases like "Grande Prairie".
While a few obits go back as far at 1990 most are much more recent.
