Bug Description

Upon adding a web ics calendar (via Evolution due to Bug #1825224), the events from this calendar were not properly time-compensated for my time zone. While Evolution and Gnome Shell displayed the time of my events properly, gnome-calendar displayed the events 7 hours in the past, likely attempting to compensate for my time zone (GMT -7).

Thank you for your bug report. Could you maybe report that problem upstream directly on ?

There are similar looking reports there but without debugging it's not easy to say if they are really the same code defect
