Despite what some of my readers might think, the statement in the title is one I know, in my heart, to be true. Canadian CEOs are far more conservative and risk-averse than their US brethern, and there is no real cult of the CEO in Canada as there is in the US.
Canadian business culture is very chummy, and probably a little older than US business culture. This means that e-mail has just become a useful tool for many Canadian CEOs. IM and Blogs? Maybe in the next generation.
