Yes, yes it is... but... Some Canadians still don't like it, even though we've used it for 35+ years... Miles per gallon still used in many car ads... even though, I for example, have NEVER bought a gallon of gas, or driven a mile... liters and kilometers forever. And produce still uses price per pound , alongside the metric price per 100 grams... And nobody says they way 100 kilograms, almost always pounds, about 220. Same for height, always 6 feet tall, not 183 centimeters... Old habits die hard, I guess.
