Identify this spider

We found this spider in the house just then. I live in eastern Canada, but have NEVER seen a spider like this before. He was crawling around on some luggage we were unpacking from a trip to Florida, so it's quite possible he came into Canada with our bags...

His body wasn't exceptionally big, but the legs were quite thick and had a nice bit of span to them. The total footprint of the spider was likely about 1/2 to 1/3 of the size of a credit card. He was also pretty fast...

Anyways, here's a picture. You can't really tell the scale unfortunately, and he's trapped under a plastic container so its a bit blurry. Anyone know what sort of spider this is? And if it is dangerous in any other way that scaring the poo out of you?

Camel Spider.

No doubt. Kill it with fire immediately before it takes over your small, maple syrup sucking country.

edit: F*CK.. this is in EvLife. Sorry OP. No cluse. I would dispose of it though. No need to start a new species hanging out in your town.

I'm gonna guess wolf spider from the size but without a clearer view of the markings identifying it will be hard.
