From the Author
Canadians are complex individuals.
In Canada, we use a combination of British and American spellings. For example, it's colour not color and neighbour not neighbor, but it's also organization instead of organisation and legalization instead of legalisation. The jury is still out on grey (British) versus gray (American), and you'll find both used prolifically across the nation.
As for measurement, Canada is technically a metric nation. Yet, the majority of Canadians, even youth today, still refer to their weight and height using Imperial measurements. Recipes and measurements for construction and plumbing are also still aligned with the USA, as anyone who has purchased Ikea faucets and tried to connect them to their home's Imperial plumbing system can attest to.
In summary, the stories I have set in Canada, will use Canadian spellings and measurements. Rest assured, as I was born and raised in the True North, I have the eccentricities and oddities of this great nation down pretty darn well. If given the choice, I will continue to use what I affectionately call "Canadian Quirks" instead of "Americanizing" my writing.
