Earthquake in Canada?

CERI - Center for Earthquake Research and Information, this morning reports an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.5 [3.0 + being considered an actual quake] North of Ottawa. Estimates for the quake show it to have been centered somewhere approximately 100 miles NW of Ottawa in a relatively unpopulated region. Initially people were reporting it as being in New York state, but this was incorrect. The USGS often relates locations of quakes outside the USA to the nearest town inside the USA, which was a border community in New York. But in reality the quake was more than 150 N-NW of New York and the USA border.

This particular quake caught my attention because once again, it's an area not normally found to have quakes...much less a 3.5 shaker and even odder was the depth of the quake, some 11+ miles down. This was a deep movement.
