If you want to know more, watch Strange Brew.Spelling follows Canadian rules, not British or American. There's some overlap both ways. We don't say "oot and aboot" so neither should Siri. We say kilometre properly, where it rhymes with pillowfeeter (and centimetre, and millimetre, and kilolitre, and …) rather than speedometer. Bob and Doug were lovable fictional characters, not learned men of elocution. ;-)The best we can hope for is that Siri will say hockey, not 'ice haw-key', and she won't say MON-tree-all for Montréal, or trip over her digital lips when saying attempting to say Saskatchewan or Kapuskasing.
