When you signed up for Gmail did you choose Canada or US?
Highly doudt it makes a difference just picks up where the ip address is.

although the option to fwd your google voice calls to gmail chat DOES show up it the google voice settings. i  tried it and my gmail inbox started ringing.  BUT for some reason even though i turned call screening off,  when i click answer the recording says "to accept press 1, to  send to voicemail  press 2" and i have no way of answering because there's no keypad to select an option. i guess i'll have to stick with the really old fashioned 1900's way of communicating. the telephone.

If you are outside the US, you will likely want to see this before you screw things up: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2010/08/dont-click-this-button-in-google-voice.html

How do you do that?
You have an option in Google Talk to forward to Google Talk. Enable that option, click call, type the number you wish to call, and use phone "Google Talk". It will show up as a voice call in Gtalk. Click "answer"

yup it  works.
now lets work on incoming. is  anyone else having this issue with having to press 1 to accept even with the option turned off?
there's gotta be some sort of desktop keypad available for download so that you can press 1 to accept when it rings in your inbox. (im talking about out of the US)

I wonder if you use your system sounds as a mic (sound card dependent) and play the sound of a 1 being pressed if that would work
