The Canadian maple leaf flag

Grand Theft Auto games in Canada arrive typically around the same day as copies released to the United States of America.

Some stores in the East Coast don't get the newest releases until 6 weeks after they are released in the West Coast. People in Ontario and Quebec traditionally get their games three weeks after they are released in Victoria and Vancouver.
