Subject Re: en_CA locale

I used to go crazy trying to explain to Adobe that English (North
American) was incorrect as the CA and US branches are somewhat different,
not just for the reasons you point below.  Most Canadian developers I
talked to hated this with a passion.  We use the same spelling as the
Brits.  You just made about 33,000,000 new friends.

Note that we spell words differently too (Check vs Cheque, neighbour vs
neighbor).  The languages are about 4% different. Canadian SIN and
American SIN's have about the same mask (or masque).
