Loosely speaking, it seems we have a bit more of a "CBC English" factor
at play here.  I joke because it seems CBC journalists and anchors have
a very neutral if slightly British accent, particularly on Radio One,
generally with a more British vocabulary but if the British word is
ambiguous, barrows from American English when it's more descriptive.  An
example of this is the "sport=soccer" tag, since "football" is ambiguous
as it could be referring to FIFA, two different gridiron sports, or
Australian football, which is played on a field shaped more like a
cricket pitch than a soccer or gridiron field.
