Also, Canada isn't the only cold place in North America so the lack of instances elsewhere make it hard to associate with cold.

I'd like to know how a defect in glass material, construction and sunroof mechanism design spans multiple vehicle lines

I'd also like to know why this wouldn't be an insurance issue
If anything it would be a supplier issue. I won't claim to know where every manufacturer gets their glass from, and if they use multiple suppliers, however it seems plausible that a supplier released some poor quality glass that ended up in several manufacturer's vehicles.
