Please Use Your Canadian Spelling

Schools here in Canada, Ontario (Newmarket, Ontario to be precise) are teaching students to spell the US way. Not Canadian. Why?

I don’t know but it makes me angry. No modifying, polite, adjectives, just plain angry.

It is hard to find Canadian spelling online. It is not offered as an option. You can easily find options for US and UK spelling. All English spelling is not created equal. What about Canada, Australia and other cultures who use the English language in their own way?

People need to speak up, spell up! Tell site owners, webmasters, content marketers and the rest of them to offer Canadian spelling (or whatever English spelling you come from).

Most of all – Use your Canadian spelling yourself. Keep it alive, active and popular.
