I found these beetle east of Winnipeg ,Manitoba in a camp ground called Lilac Resort. They were about 1⁄4 of an inch long. One hitched a ride home in one of our coolers without us knowing. Although I couldn’t find any beetles that look like this one on your site, it looks akin to the blister or tiger beetle; although I’m certain it’s neither. Can you ID it for me? Thank you,

Hi Ian,
According to BugGuide, the Green Immigrant Leaf Weevil, Polydrusus sericeus, is widespread in the Eastern U.S. and Canada where it was introduced from Europe. It feeds on the leaves of yellow birch.
