Can AOL Ever be EhOL?

Despite the obvious closeness of the two countries, the US and Canada have some big differences.


For example, here in Edmonton, let's check out the local TV news on cable channel KTLA, where hockey is often the last item on the sportscast; right after women's college diving and WWE highlights. Likewise, north of the 49th, we think Karl "the Mailman" Malone was the Canada Post official that Prime Minister Martin just canned. Here hockey rules but in the US, basketball is far more important.


Now let's put some hi-tech spin on this.


Even with a name like AOL Canada Inc. we hosers still believe the company is AMERICA Online. Officially, AOL Canada is a strategic alliance between America Online, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Time Warner, and RBC Royal Bank, the personal and commercial banking division of RBC Financial Group.
