Things you should know when writing about Canadians!

You should have said, I will spell it favorite when you educate yourself on countries that are not your own. I am British and I also spell it that way. It looks wrong otherwise. American spellings p*ss me off so much because I already have a hard time spelling as it is but then to have to correct my spelling so the spell checker doesn’t try to correct me.

Agreed. Even in my story I hate when I have to proofread and be like,
Sh1t it’s color not colour.
I’m just trying to avoid drama at all costs. It would be nice though if The US could be a little more educated about it.

OMG!!! WHAT?!
Okay sorry if I go off about this but this is my biggest pet peeve!
A poutine is a DELICATE dish made of gravy, squeaky cheese and fries. IT WAS ORIGINALLY MADE IT CANADA, QUEBEC! PERIOD!
Usa calls it “Cheese, Gravy and Fries” but no it is a Canadian Poutine, the word poutine is also french not to mention!

That’s so annoying, I don’t think that people realize that spelling is different in some countrys.
