Looking for help to ID this Black and White Hornet (Wasp)? - Spilomyia fusca

Looking for help to ID this Black and White Hornet (Wasp)? - Spilomyia fusca
Mew Lake Trail near Arowhon Road., Nipissing/Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada

I have never seen a black and white hornet or wasp with this strange eye pattern. The closest thing that I could find was a Bald-faced hornet in the Vespidae family but again the eye pattern seems wrong. Any help with an ID would be appreciated. Thank you. Stephen
