Getting CanMatrix instead of USGS 7.5

This weird thing has started recently, where, even if the base layer is set to USGS 7.5, there are sections that shoe CanMatrix instead. In particular, southern half of Vancouver Island. Ironically, everything south of the 49th parallel shows as Canmatrix, rather than USGS.

    Can you send me a screenshot? I'm wondering if there's a naming disconnect, CanMatrix maps shouldn't have coverage in the US.

    Here is a screenshot. Set to USGS, but only the upper left of this is USGS.
    The rest is CanMatrix. Thanks foor investigating.

    Sorry for the delay -

    The Canadian portion of the due-to-be-renamed "USGS 7.5'" layer was recently re-rendered to cover all of Canada; previously it just covered the southern portion and BC. Several datasources were pieced together for this, and not all areas that had pre-existing coverage are going to match what was there before.

    There was never actually coverage from the USGS there. In this case the layers that look different came from cantopo rather than canmatrix.
