Conventions used in the creation of this website.

The definitive source for Canadian English. Let's put the 'u' back into Canaduh! Canadian Eh?

Canadian Oxford Dictionary

It is used by most major Canadian newspapers, publishing houses and the government of Canada. The influential Canadian Press Stylebook follows the Canadian Oxford Dictionary. The dictionary was a publishing success, staying on Canadian bestseller lists for over a year, something quite unusual for a reference book.

Where does this lead, you ask?

This website and any other wordsmithing that I do, I try to use "proper" Canadian spelling with the above noted dictionary as the primary reference.
If I were just out of school or an accomplished Canadian (educated) author, then perhaps my grammer and punctuation would be close to 100% correct.
As it is, what you see, is what you get.

A quote from this site:
"The Government of Canada is proud to announce the launch of the Language Portal of Canada, which provides all Canadians with free, one-stop access to a wide range of language tools, including the Translation Bureau's TERMIUM PlusĀ®. The Portal is also a gateway to numerous other online resources provided by contributors working all across Canada. The language resources presented on the Portal reflect 30 years of research, and are considered authoritative sources regarding language usage. Users will find everything they need: spelling and grammar rules, writing and translation tips, and much more."

Why the amber background colour?
There is a possibility of putting colours or images as a background on the web pages,
but an amber background lacks the harshness of a white background and I think text is easier to read.
So there!
If you have an issue with the colour choice, c'mon, pick up a sword and try to change my mind.

Date notation used in the club authored documents uses the ISO 8601(international) format of - YYYY-MM-DD OR Alternately YYYY/MM/DD
Dates may also be written out. eg: JAN 1, 2010.
Writing time and date in ISO format removes any ambiguity in the notation.
The ISO standard describes time in similar notation. eg: HH:MM:SS ex: 23:35:19 (Highest to lowest left to right)
