Possible Lixus weevil - Cleonis piger

Possible Lixus weevil - Cleonis piger
Mer Bleue conservation area, Ottawa-Carleton, Ontario, Canada
September 1, 2012
Size: approx 1 inch
I found this very large weevil on a milkweed leaf. It seems that it could be in the Genus Lixus, but I would like to know if this is correct or not, as I've not seen this particular type of weevil before.
