Cape Spear is the most easterly point in Canada. Newfoundlanders always call it “the most easterly point in North America” but they don’t seem to know that Greenland is usually considered part of North America.
It’s one of those “facts” that Newfoundlanders are fed from birth, and there’s no use in trying to dispute it with facts. Other Newfoundland “facts” are “John Cabot found Newfoundland” and “St. John’s is the oldest City in North America.” Both of those are false too, but don’t mention that to Newfoundlanders.
