My reaction to the description of "Hell or Glory" was entirely undignified and entirely warranted

Miles' and Bells are so flaming cute, I can't believe I forgot that fact.
Also: factcheck, Canada's drinking age is either 18 or 19, depending on the province.

He appears to be referencing Cam's US origins, not present location?

Yes. Sindri, a Miles, will always default to meaning 'your place of birth' when saying 'your country' unless he knows something about the person he is addressing that makes something else a better-fit meaning, and 'currently living in Technically Nonrandom Rural Location, Canada' does not constitute such knowledge.

But it is more relevant for underage drinking laws. I suppose still not very much so until he could drink in Canada.

...the relevance of the drinking laws is that the US has an absurdly high drinking age and, having grown up there, Cam probably has a significantly different cultural background on the subject of age and its relationship to maturity than someone from Thule.

Canada's drinking age is highly irrelevant to Cam since he didn't come to Canada until he was like thirty.
