country of origin

a) The country in which a person or thing is deemed to have originated for the purposes of laws and regulations.

The country of origin of a manufactured article is held to be the country in which the article has been finished by a substantial amount of labor amounting to not less than one-fourth the cost of production of such article in condition as imported into Canada.

b) The country where shipped goods are produced.

It says "Made in Mexico". I wonder if that is the real country of origin.
