Country code +1 is CANADA for Canadians! How to fix it?

Whenever I click on a number like 1-866-555-4226, Skype pops up and says it will call an United States number +1-866-555-4226.  

 

WRONG!   It's a Canadian number, I'm in Canada, my country code is +1.   How do I get Skype to be a little less brain-dead about Canadian country codes?

Actually Canada's country code is 011 + 1 + City Area Code + Prefix + Subfix in the skype setup page enter something like +011 5145551212 (montreal listing info)

Actually, Canada's counrtry code is 1, and is dialed as +1 via Skype.  It's the same for the U.S.  011 is used to make International calls via a traditional landline but not via Skype.

 

I don't know if there's a solution for the problem the orignal poster had 9 months ago, but dialing 011 isn't it.
