Where the Hell is Ontario...????

I have no idea what it is, but there is something which prompts some of our callers to identify their province of Ontario, as being in Canada. "And from which city and province are you calling us today?"... "Ontario, Canada!".
"Oh...I see... as opposed to Ontario in Nairobi... or the one in Turkey, gotcha! And the name of your town or city was what again...?"

I mean okay, there is a City of Ontario in the County of San Bernardino, State of California. There is a City of Ontario in the State of Oregon as well. There is also a County in the State of New York by the same name. However, I doubt more than six people in Canada actually know this and none of them reside in Ontario, in all likelyhood. Maybe it's us...? Maybe they think we're actually a call centre that's been outsourced to Mumbai or Lahore. Hmmm....never thought of it that way before... Maybe I should start practising my East Indian dialects on them? The fun and merriment could be endless...
