Thank you for your views on this confusing topic. It is frustrating when our spell checkers keep auto correcting our correct spellings. Google, Apple are all American companies. We studied correctly, but as adults we are often double guessing. But like our friends across the pond, we spell differently from our closer neighbours. More confusion when you are writing in Canada but for an American forum. I guess we should all remember this quote, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do."
