it's colour

as the joke goes: the major difference b/w canadians and americans is that canadians spell colour w/ a "u", americans spell it w/ a "k"

It is colour.

The U is needed to soften the second O, so you can pronounce it right

I say color, cuz I'm American. But sometimes it seems like almost all of the people here are from other countries, so it all depends on where your from. I say if your an American, then you should be executed for treason if you spell it colour. j/k, but it's kinda dumb to spell it different just if you have no reason to.

Correct English spelling is 'Colour'.

I expect the poll result will show color as the winner. Only because there are more Americans here and as we know, none of them speak or spell the proper english language.
