I could focus on other points in the article, but, I choose this one

east of the Maine border.

Moncton is 166 miles East of Maine...In CANADA.

Not sure I understand the issue

They were probably just trying to give their US readers a sense of where Moncton is.

I agree..however, Moncton is nowhere near the "Maine border". I realize they don't claim it's near the border. When I use something as a reference point it is usually "near" the other point I am referring to, not 166 miles

Once you cross the Maine/New Brunswick border...you just go down the road 166 miles and you'll be in Moncton

An example

PLASTER ROCK, New Brunswick — A freight train carrying crude oil and propane derailed and caught fire in a sparsely populated region of New Brunswick about 10-15 miles east of the Maine border late Tuesday, leading to the evacuation of about two dozen nearby homes, authorities said.

annex any land S. and E. of the banks of the St. Lawrence. We own N.B and Nova Scotia. Problem solved.

IF the US annexed any land S. and E. of the banks of the St. Lawrence. They would also own a part of Quebec.

Africa is also "east of the Maine Border"...Heck...the rest of the world is "east of the Maine border"

Too many trees for your liking?

Not enough pavement/signs of civilization? Devil
I think the ratio (trees to pavement) is pretty good, I would like a few less potholes caused by snowplows though.

From the International Space Station out in....the ENTIRE world looks beautiful....Perhaps you're not flying high enough. Wink
