Chart.js responsive option - Chart not filling container

Check out this fiddle. What am I doing wrong? Isn't the responsive option supposed to force the chart to fill it's container?

Chart.js - Chart not filling container

<div style="width:800px; height:400px;">
<canvas id="myChart"></canvas>
</div>


<script>
$( document ).ready(function() {

var data = {
labels: ["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July"],
datasets: [
{
label: "My First dataset",
fillColor: "rgba(220,220,220,0.2)",
strokeColor: "rgba(220,220,220,1)",
pointColor: "rgba(220,220,220,1)",
pointStrokeColor: "#fff",
pointHighlightFill: "#fff",
pointHighlightStroke: "rgba(220,220,220,1)",
data: [65, 59, 80, 81, 56, 55, 40]
},
{
label: "My Second dataset",
fillColor: "rgba(151,187,205,0.2)",
strokeColor: "rgba(151,187,205,1)",
pointColor: "rgba(151,187,205,1)",
pointStrokeColor: "#fff",
pointHighlightFill: "#fff",
pointHighlightStroke: "rgba(151,187,205,1)",
data: [28, 48, 40, 19, 86, 27, 90]
}
]
};
options = {
responsive: true
};
// Get context with jQuery - using jQuery's .get() method.
var ctx = $("#myChart").get(0).getContext("2d");
// This will get the first returned node in the jQuery collection.
var myLineChart = new Chart(ctx).Line(data, options);
});
</script>

Answer

Sorry about this, but I realized that the version I was using was outdated. For future reference, I found an up to date version of chart.js here.

//cdn.jsdelivr.net/chart.js/1.0.1-beta.4/Chart.min.js

Here is the updated fiddle
