I guess it has to do with being a young country. Australia has pretty much the same problem. (kangaroos, boomerangs, beaches,...)

No one associates Canada with Tim Hortons except Canadians - its simply not known outside our countries.

And the donut will remain an American creation to most, even if I think we technically consume more per capita than anyone else in the world.
