Deb,
You are describing the 'false potato beetle', which is related to CPB.
 We most commonly see it on horse nettle, it's preferred plant.  Brief
search did not turn up Canada Thistle as a preferred plant.
Online images, such as Google Images, show pics of the off-white
larvae, and the slight differences between the two types of adults.
