The latest article from Jon Matonis which in this case contains a serious error.

Quote
... Mt. Gox’s non-U.S. customers are not affected by the change and they continue with procedures as before the announcement.
 This is blatantly wrong since the deal involves MtGox Customers in both Canada and the United States and last I heard Canada is not the 51st state. Also the title of the artilce is missleading since since there is no repratiation of assets when assets owned by a Canadian are moved from Japan to the United States.

You are correct about that and I will make the edit.
It is most unfortunate that being Canadian cannot be a benefit in this case.
