does Canada generally employ full British spellings or is it a bit of a mixed bag?

It is becoming more of a mixed bag due to the pervasiveness of the internet.. My laptop is set to Canadian English, and will highlight typos if I use the US spelling of things like centre, colour, grey, metre, etc., etc.

Can't understand why there is no "U" in American honour or valour.

Well, it isn't there in Latin to start with.  English hoovers up vocabulary when and where and in the state it can find it.
