Does anyone get this duplicate message in search console when using ahreflang tags -

'Duplicate, submitted URL not selected as canonical' ?

It seems like Google is taking the .ca as the authority site, even with the hreflang tags. 

 
Indexing allowed?
Yes
User-declared canonical
Google-selected canonical
https://site.ca/

My setup:
<link rel="canonical" href="{{ canonical_url }}">
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="x-default" href="{{ canonical_url | replace: shop.domain, 'store.com' }}" />
<link rel="alternate" href="{{ canonical_url | replace: shop.domain, 'store.com' }}" hreflang="en-us" />
<link rel="alternate" href="{{ canonical_url | replace: shop.domain, 'store.ca' }}" hreflang="en-ca" />
<link rel="alternate" href="{{ canonical_url | replace: shop.domain, 'store.com' }}" hreflang="en" />
