The same way they know that any other location is using whatever time it
uses. By the user having specified it (if the user's local time is wrong
they'll "obviously" know it as soon as the daylight saving transition is
supposed to happen but doesn't) or by checking the location against the
data at http://efele.net/maps/tz/canada/
