Gnome locale selected and sample date format
Description of problem:
When adding an event to gnome-calendar, the date format is displayed as mm/dd/yyyy although the gnome regional settings are set to Canada/English which has a date format of dd/mm/yyyy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome-calendar 3.18.1 on Fedora 23
Set Region and Language Formats to Canada (or other than US???)
Open gnome-calendar and enter a new event.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Settings Region and Language
2. Set Language to English (Canada)
3. Set Formats to Canada (English)
Date format in gnome-calendar is mm/dd/yyyy
Date format in gnome-calendar should be dd/mm/yyyy
Evolution does not have this problem
Not sure about other apps; not tested if gnome-calendar will respect other locales.
