Thanks for this reference, and you're quite right.

I'll submit this as part of my next proposed patch.  I don't view this
change as urgent, since it doesn't take effect until March of next
year.  The change itself should be quite simple, as you suggest:

-                       -4:00   Moncton A%sT
+                       -4:00   Moncton A%sT    2007
+                       -4:00   Canada  A%sT

plus garbage-collect the two "Moncton 2007" rules.

And just today I wrote Robbin Kawabata that I didn't know of any
further changes needed for Canada next year!  It just goes to show
that one cannot predict Canadian politicians....
