The only difference is Canadian versions normally have french writing on the cover, people who collect DVD's sometimes don't like it.

some canadian DVDs also drop extras (monster Inc Canada has no FX track but french 5.1 instead) or soundtracks (I am Sam Canada drops the english DTS in favor of a French DD5.1)
I think that french writing on th cover should be the least problem
(it is for me)

well for I am Sam for example I checked all current reviews with www.dvd-basen.dk, which all listed english DTS and NO french track
then I compaired it to the specifications from www.dvdsoon.com
they list a french and english DD5.1, but no DTS, and that DVD is released by Alliance (canadian studio)
All of which leads to the conclusion that the Canadian loses the DTS, even UKR2 has that one!!

Yet I find it very difficult to check that for all titles esp. those that are only supposed to come out in a few weeks time, where no reviews are available.
www.futureent.com tell u if they sell the US or Canadian disc.
Cdwow and most others don't.
cdwow have it for £9.99 which would be great for the USdisc, But I'm not willing to sacrifice the DTS track for a useless(my opinion) french dub

hehe I CAN speak french(and more). Living in Luxembourg I had to endure dubbed films(german and french) for 18 years. Then DVD came along and all is fine now.Those who don't want to watch films in the original language can watch'em on dubbed P&S VHS for all I care. And there's also the possibility of watching it in the original language with subs in a language u understand. That way people can learn the language easier.
I couldn't imagine watching Amelie in anything else then french why would I wanna watch an english or american film in french or german??

for all those who don't agree....erm let's debate but don't kill me please:rolleyes:
They can always put additional soundtracks on DVDs as long as they don't drop anything else.
but that's only me and probably a totaly different topic to How To Find The Difference Between US and Canadian R1s

well I learned luxembourgish from birth, german when I was 8, french when I was 9, english when I was 13 and spanish (not fluent though) when I was 15. As luxembourgish is close to dutch I can also read dutch
I know a bit intimidating for some. But hey that's the advantage of living in a small country.:)
