The Ontario question should be reworded...Technically it is not true. Ontario touches water, but Hudson Bay is not a sea. Neither is the Atlantic Ocean or Arctic Ocean.

The question says "the sea".

Wikipedia: "The sea, the world ocean or simply the ocean is the connected body of salty water that covers over 70% of Earth's surface"

Hudson Bay is not a sea, but it is part of the sea - as noted above, that means it is part of the interconnected system of salt-water oceans and seas that cover most of the earth. In any case, while it is called a bay, it is not really a bay either - it is far too large.
