This is a little harder online, but ask away! (My least favorite subject)

Okay, so I've got a research paper type thing on British Columbia (Canada) due on Friday. I've got to pretty much tell a story, but add in facts about the culture. Now, before you tell me that I'm being lazy and not doing research, I'm not. However, if anyone could help me with this, I'd appreciate it. What are some words that are different in the States than in Canada that mean the same thing. For instance, a high school is a secondary school in Canada, correct?

Nope. We say highschool too. We also say secondary school, but more rarely. One thing to note if you're going to write like a Canadian, is that we use mostly "British" spellings. So it's "colour" not "color", and "honour" not "honor". And for words that end in the sound combination "er" it's usually (but not always) written as "re". As in "theatre", "centre" etc.

Laszlo (steampunk) | 1100 comments History is, next to Physics and a few other things, my favorite subject! How could you not like it? I am not trying to be rude.
