Butter tarts - only in Canada?

There was a hot post about the best butter tart in Toronto.

I've never heard of these and I've worked and vacationed in Canada. Are they ever made in the US and why not? This doesn't seem to have anything in it that is Canadian-specific. Have they crossed the border and if not, I wonder why not. Is it just pecan pie without the pecans?
