Congratulations to BOSTON and all of New England tonight! Scroll for first and last >>>>>>>
(Not my pics, and last shots of Boston from me for a while. I'll start posting again when I switch over to flickr and when Millennium Tower is making its mark, probably around Fall.)

Indeed. As far as I know traditionally here on SSC, Panama has been considered to be in North America.

Correct; it has been this way since time immemorial. Even the most ancient forumers who are known to have existed here as early as 2002 can bear witness to this.

That large building in the park ringed by that road is the Ontario Legislature, comparable to a US State Capitol building. The park is called 'Queen's Park' but we also use that name in reference to our provincial government. We might say something like "Queen's Park is raising taxes" but we mean the Ontario government when we say that.

Directly to the right (west) of Queen's Park you can see the University of Toronto so you were close to being right. Varsity Stadium, the U of T football stadium, is in the lower right corner with a bubble erected over the field.
