---- Tell Google Your Site's Location with Webmaster Tools

The location information is used when you wish to limit the reach of a site.
Is it? Or does it help ranking in specific country? As I noted in my previous post, if I take a site hosted in Canada but targetted to Americans and I put US into the webmaster control panel, what happens to my rankings in Google.ca? Google.com?
Your post is suggesting that it would drop my rankings in google.ca and do nothing in google.com. But does anyone know if that's correct? Because I'd like to think that it would actually help my rankings in Google.com, (I'm making the assumption that hosting in the US will help rankings in google.com. And that this change in the webmaster control panel is equivalent to a change in hosting location).
